RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student

TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL


http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/teacher...00504.html

Quote:Last year, Jordan Powers was just another student from Mr. Hooker's class. Now she's his live-in girlfriend.

James Hooker -- the 41-year-old married father who left his wife and kids for his 18-year-old-student -- might be the worst teacher ever. Last week, he resigned from his job at Enochs High School in Modesto, California over the scandal that's shaken up a community and pit one mom on a crusade to save her daughter from a man she calls a "master manipulator."

Video: Teacher caught on tape bullying a student

Jordan met her teacher as a freshman, but both maintain nothing physical happened until she turned 18 this past September. Hooker claims he saw Powers as "just a student" and had no romantic feelings toward her at first, but when her most recent birthday came around, things changed.

They changed so much, in fact, that Hooker, left his wife and three kids (one of them a 17-year-old Enochs high school student as well) so that he could move in with Jordan.

If this all sounds suspicious to you, imagine how Tammie Powers, Jordan's mom, feels. She's launched an official police investigation to find out if Hooker's relationship with her daughter began before Jordan was of legal age. Tammie is convinced it did, citing a photo of her daughter on Hooker's lap and text messages, emails and phone records exchanged between the couple that predate her daughter's 18th birthday.

"That's pursuit, in my opinion, with some type of intent," she told ABC News 10 in California.

Hooker denies Tammie's claims and is confident the investigation will turn up nothing. He blames the "stigma of the teacher-student relationship" for the public backlash. But Hooker's former boss, Modesto City Schools Supt. Pam Able, doesn't agree.

Even if their relationship doesn't break any laws, Able says she "considers student-teacher dating relationships to be not only unprofessional, but immoral." She also added in an email to the Modesto Bee, that Hooker's relationship has become a "source of great concern for staff, students and parents."

It must be particularly hard for Hooker's 17 year old daughter, now that her father has left to be with a fellow classmate and become a notorious figure throughout the school.

Still, Hooker claims he has no regrets. In an interview with Good Morning America, he shut down Tammie's accusations as a "pack of lies" and said of his new love, "we really do want to have a future together."

Watch: ABC News' exclusive interview with Hooker and Powers

Jordan, a quiet, fragile-seeming young woman, who looks closer to 15 than 18 years in age, gazed up at her former teacher, a man that looks every bit his 41 years, and said, "He's more than just a lover."

Jordan has now stopped going to classes and is finishing out her senior year by doing an independent study. She has limited contact with her mom, now that she's living with her teacher, mom's worst nightmare.

Desperate for her child, Tammie has turned her own Facebook page into a "most wanted" profile for Hooker. She's plastered his photo all over her wall warning neighbors about the man she calls an "arrogant pig". She's also made her wallpaper a photo of a prison cell, sending a message to Hooker should he dare visit her site.

Since the story has been picked up by national press, she's been flooded with messages of support from strangers. Tonight, she'll be taking her crusade against Hooker to Nancy Grace Giant Whore Bag. "Nancy's always been a victims advocate and fights for justice," Tammie wrote on Facebook. "That's the goal here, justice."

How's that for a biased article?

That teacher gets a congrats from me bwahahahha and if they do love each other then whatever. Though the teacher was a dick for just up and leaving his wife and kids. The girls mom is probably some jealous pig trolololol.

This whole story is so lulzy.

Lol I would do the same and the fact that the guy can easily leave his wife and kids says very negative about them.

A woman would do it and she's empowered but if a guy does it then yadda yadda shaming language!

Younger woman>old bitch.

Yeah dude since it's probably totally one sided. They probably never had any fights, and he probably left without warning lol. Yeah the fuck right.

To be perfectly honest I think she is just infatuated. Her mom is fucking going off the wall, no wonder she is running away with her teacher.

RE: Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student

That mother is a fucking idiot. This situation just proves how out of touch she was with her child. Now, all of the sudden, she decides to play parent- When it's too late. Teenage girls are NOT good at hiding their emotions. If she was the least bit vigilant and involved she would've at least SUSPECTED something. Now the media is having some retarded cockfest over this.
The point is now they really have nothing on this guy. It's just a bunch of moralfags having a field day over this. It's not important. And all this 'concerned' mother is doing is showing just how incredibly neglectful she was of her daughter and chasing her daughter away.
Also, lol@ OMG HE LEFT HIS POOR WIFE AND KIDS. So ridiculously one-sided. I'm absolutely certain the relationship he had with his wife wasn't perfect, and who knows about his kids. For all we know, the family could have been falling apart from the start. Which it probably was.
Bottom line is, the girl is legal, their relationship is legal, the only thing controversial here is that there's an age gap and he was her teacher. This is a non issue. I don't understand why people don't flip shit over more important issues.

RE: Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student

^ Exactly.

And, eighteen is eighteen. If this girl is STILL, after eighteen years, dumb enough to fall into some sort of "sexual trap" this guy has purportedly laid, she's an idiot. I'm eighteen as well, and I'm pretty sure I'd have at it with a couple of my teachers too. That doesn't mean I'm an "innocent young teen who fell into a trap", it means I want to get it on with one of my teachers. Stop trying to protect people who don't want to be protected. I'm pretty sure this guy isn't Charles Manson. (If he is, then this bitch is fucking dumb. Srsly.)

His life, his choice.

Hidden stuff:
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

RE: Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student

If they were truly in love with each other, and the girl is mature enough to know about how this shit works, then nobody needed to get butthurt about it.

And, like Teini said, his family's relationship wasn't the best if he would start loving a 18 years old, for real too.

I really hope that's the way they are going, and not that Durr News says.

Yeah. It's really not an issue at all. There are more important issues to be concerned with. Not some batshit crazy woman who emotionally neglected her daughter, and suddenly wants to play parent when she turns 18. Total bullshit.

Haha this is funny. I don't see why people give a fuck, it's just a consenual relationship. It was mean of him to abandon his family, but other than that, who cares? The mom needs to just gtfo and stfu.
