Teacher Leaves Wife, Kids for High School Student
Yahoo ^ | 01 March 2012 | Piper Weiss, Shine Staff

Posted on 03/01/2012 5:32:57 PM PST by Repeat Offender

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."

That girl needs a father to go have a conversation with this former teacher that has the conversation end with the former teacher suddenly leaving town.

Agree, especially since he has a 17 year-old daughter.

.."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."

Until he finds another piece of chicken in the bucket, or until she realizes when she's 40 how much she missed out on her young life.

He's nothing but a selfish a$$. Not thinking of his family, his daughter, just what the brain between his legs wants.

The creep would have plenty of Freepers defending him, and blaming everything on the student and the student’s lack of moral character.
As we have seen for months going on here on Free Republic in a similar situation.

Truly America has lost its moral compass.

Moral absolutes ping.

Where I come from older men with younger teen girls is just wrong. Clinton really added the damage to our moral fabric when the women allowed him to have a pass now being transformed into a statesman when many of us know he is trash. Imo.

While there might be a few creepy Freepers. Most want to see the pics of the girl more for curiosity than anything else. I think most here realize that nothing is to be gained for the 18 year old.

No mention of the girl having a father in her life—which is probably why she selected this teacher as her “friend.”

I've heard a good rule of thumb for minimum age of a girlfriend is "half your age plus 7". It seems to work over a surprisingly wide range, only breaking down for the elderly.

The old joke “some days I feel like an 18 year old... but it’s pretty tough finding one who’s willing around here” won’t apply to him - at least for a year.

The case I am referring to had dozens and dozens of freepers on a large number of threads specifically attacking the student for not staying faithfully married to the teacher.

It has been really sickening to watch, and they invoked God and the Bible in their attacks on the student.

Those Freepers are wrong.

I don’t support divorce, but I think compassion is needed where an inexperienced child does a stupid act like this because she has an emotional need not being met and is starving to have it met.

When I was in high school I had a teacher who knocked up a little sex pot student. He divorced his wife and married the girl.

Well, we've got a choice here: either acknowledge that an 18-year-old girl, who is a legal adult and has the right to vote, is an adult capable of making her own decisions and being held accountable for them, or go back to the days when women were considered the property, or at least, the wards, of men, fathers,husbands, etc., and thus were not responsible for their own decisions. Giving these young women full rights in some areas but treating them like children in others will not work.

Having said that, I have no doubt that this naive girl was easy pickings for this older guy and was vulnerable to manipulation. However, if she should choose to marry him, her naivete, in itself, is not grounds to toss away all standards for the sanctity of marriage. After all, there are plenty of older people, both men and women, who fall prey to manipulation and pressure in relationships, and we don't excuse them either.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Several years ago there was a local high school football coach that was caught hosting a party for the football players and cheerleaders. This party included sex, booze, etc. and it was rumored the coach had sex with one of the cheerleaders, but she would not admit to it so it wasn’t proven. There was of course an uproar in the community- coach had a very young wife and child and it was discovered his wife had been a cheerleader at his previous school that he had gotten pregnant and divorced the wife he had at the time who was also a previous cheerleader that he got pregant a few years before that! This man had been doing this for years and I guess the parents of the girls he got pregnant didn’t raise a stink since he would marry them. It was unbelievable- and schools kept hiring him- because he was a great coach don’t you know.

I've heard a good rule of thumb for minimum age of a girlfriend is "half your age plus 7". It seems to work over a surprisingly wide range, only breaking down for the elderly.

What's the purpose? To ensure that the wife becomes a widow down the road? Women do tend to outlive men by six or seven years, you know.

Not necessarily.

Here's a case where the teacher married his 15 year old student and they stayed married for almost 70 years, winning the Pulitzer Prize and multiple other honors for their joint writing.

I don’t think it helps the sanctity of marriage, by putting a girl, or young man, in a position of having been manipulated into marriage, and forcing them to have to live with that decision for the rest of their lives with no way out.

Edd is, of course, referring to Newt Gingrich who married his former high school geometry teacher. Many loons have blamed Newt for subsequently divorcing the teacher.
