    teach somebody something

    Hi,

    "...who teaches young people the paths of corruption."

    Is a preposition missed before "the paths"?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    No, it is correct.

    I think so, but wanted to read a confirmation from the teachers.

    You might be right, but I'd like to see at least a full sentence before being so confident.

    Please state that you are not a teacher when answering questions.

    I am not sure I will be able to find the whole sentence again. However, if that happens, I will post it here.
