TEXAS -- Texas is on a record-setting pace for inappropriate teacher-student relationships.

Just last week local middle school teacher, 24-year old Alexandria Vera was charged after being impregnated by her 13-year old student.

And according to the Texas Education Agency she's not the only bad teacher in the lone star state.

Between September 1st and May 31st there were 162 investigations regarding teacher sex scandals.

And the Amarillo Globe-News reports that the agency had 188 investigations last fiscal year, marking at least the 5th year of growth in a row.

Texas Lawmakers could address the topic of such relationships during next year's legislative session.
