    I dont care how inappropriate the student is , It is up to the teacher to set boundaries. She knew about the boundaries she just chose not set them. She should have never had coffee with this girl. If I were husband Id be pissed too. If it were the other way around we would be pissed at the man and automatically blaming him. Why are people feeling sorry for her? Cause she speaks with he naive damsel in distress voice?

    Teachers are supposed to be professional at all times. She was alittle too nice for my taste. She enjoyed the fact that he liked her. Im not saying its her fault that the kid wasn't playing with a full deck but I think she could have found a way to be less friendly and more of a teacher.Not reprimanding him after the pickup lines.Not telling her husband! Going to his house! Im not buying she was naiive. She plays naïve. Having coffee with him Telling him her personal business ! Hanging out with students outside of school. Talking about her husband to students! Cmon she was very inappropriate !A lot of female teachers enjoy the school boy crush. Look at the way they talk and lean and smile cross there legs. Look at what they wear. They giggle like a school girl when boys make comments instead reporting it. Teachers whatever happened to being teachers? Stop trying to be the cool teacher!There is a 4Th grade teacher who wears tight fitting dresses you would wear to the club. She know she has a smokin body. She has the big huge butt. Probably purchased . And Big huge breasts. Looking for attention obviously.Not appropriate for teaching. So this teacher was not a saint. She needs to find another profession. She didn't kill him but she did encourage him.

    I really feel sorry for the teacher she doesn't deserve it. I hope she sued those teenagers families who lied. I wonder what she's doing now. Sure she should've put her boundaries but I don't think she did nothing wrong. I have a teacher just like her, most students would meet her after school or the weekends because volunteering for our school weekends events. She would help her student every way she can and there was nothing innopropiate was going on. Bless her. Lot of student trusted her and she was really fun and easy to talk to. Sometimes it's all innocent and no need to suspect. I also had another teacher in my school who I had a crush on. He was only 6 years older than me. He was so hot and lot of girls had a teenage crush on him. I was one of his favourite student and there were times we were left alone but nothing happened. I really respect him as my teacher. He was really nice but he was never innopripate with me. Sometimes teacher natural nature they are too nice but sometimes they get judge for that.

    This film was based on the story of English & Spanish teacher Lou Ann Hogan & 16-yr.-old student Chad Cadenhead. Hogan taught at Clark High School in San Antonio, Texas & was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with Cadenhead & Cadenhead eventually committed suicide. Hogan was terminated from the school based upon written witness statements from Clark H.S. students & Hogan sued her accusers.

We've also been "bullied" by these rich cunts in this town, and know what they'll do...they're no more emotionally evolved than teenagers, because their money tells them they don't have to be."

    He was adopted and got a hard time from his adopted parents, so he was vulnerable and insecure and when the teacher paid him some attention he got hooked on her. As for the friends, they talked down to him and made him feel inferior. Poor kid! Thanks for uploading.

  • Gayl Baker

    I think the only thing that Paulette was guilty of was maybe some of her outfit choices could of been a little less reveling give that she was teaching teenage kids.
    When I was at school i always remember this teacher that wore her skirt just a little too short and how the boys would react to it. Teenagers can blow things out of proportion. Sad she gave up teaching as she was good at it, we don't live in a easy world and there are plenty of people who try to make it hard for you on lifes journey. Often kindness and compassion are mistaken for more.

    She overstepped the boundaries despite everyone around her telling her to stop. A teacher is a teacher. A social worker is a social worker. As the adult, it was her responsibility to act like the adult.

  • Dewie Ward

    yeah well theres no crime in being human,having a heart,and caring enough to help someone in need,especially from a child,student,ect.,when they are simply asking or pleaing for help or guidence.And regardless if her husband asked her 10 times not to talk to the boy,she cared enough to stand rite there in her own front yard the same day as her trial and go over his work for him like he asked.How could you tell a child no.Like really.And not to mention the fact that if she distanced her self away from every student,male or female,that asked her for help or opinion,that would have made her look even more guilty.I wonder if anyone ever thought of how this wowan may have felt on the inside about the student taking his own life.For what ever reason,regardless of what grounds.She was his teacher,she tried to help him.He had personal problems with school and home.So i would imagine if it were me,and i were her,i would have felt somewhat guilty,not responsible,but atleast wondered was there anything else that she could have maybe done to prevent that boy from taking his own life.Im not saying its her fault at all.Im just simply saying that she was a caring teacher that cared about her students and their wellbeing,and im pretty damn certain thats something she has to live with the rest of her life.And all the bullshit that came with and after.Silver spooned rich snobby ass teenage boys whos parents werent any different.smh.its all about having a skapegoat.

  • Michael

    Having been a teacher for a very short time and later in life having been accused of a sex crime against children I had never seen or heard of by a stranger (which it later turned out was not really an accusation at all), I do however understand exactly what it is like once the machine gets rolling. In my case, I did nothing even questionable--I never so much as heard of or seen any of the people involved in the "accusation," which the accuser would admit. Thankfully, the jury saw the truth.
    One has to fight for a trial in this country so most weak cases end in plea deals. After being accused, I decided that no one was going to accuse me of a sex crime without me in turn fighting back. One risks everything in going to trial and not taking a plea, especially when that plea is one that allows the arrest to be expunged without having to even give a plea and the case marked as an outright dismissal. For me, it would have been a far worse sentence than years in jail if I took a plea for a crime I did not commit. I said no to every offer and I wasn't about to let them mark the case as a dismissal when that would have been a lie. I told them, you dismiss these charges against me straight out, or we go to trial.
    I cried when I heard the not-guilty verdict in this film and I wept when I heard it at my own trial. Today, if one is accused of a sex crime, being innocent does not matter to most in the criminal justice system, except it can matter to the jury with some luck. My jury could not understand why they were there, they weren't the only ones. No one could quite say what it was I was accused of. The charges were against children, no contact alleged, and no one claimed I even saw or knew these people. It was like out of Kafka novel.
    Fortunately I was a wealthy enough man to pay the high bail and hire a lawyer. My attorney couldn't have done worse however the case was so absurd, in the end, it was difficult to lose. But still, it was terrifying. One never gets over a false accusation. It's been several years, and not a minute goes by that I don't in some way think about it
    The case against me was public too although by the time of the trial the media lost interest so I contacted them after I was aquitted and they reported on it. I have since filed a civil suit against the parties involved which is still pending in US District Court. I hope to return to this page once I have won and give details.

    The way they make her seem in this movie, is like an older woman who's flattered by the attention. She never set's a clear line and owns it. Instead of saying "I'm not going to talk about this with you. It's inappropriate. I'm not attracted to you. I hope you understand this and still want my help, because I want to help you, but you can't speak to me like that," she says "I'm a married woman and you're my student." To a 16 yr old boy, this implies that she would, but she's not allowed, BUT she would if she could. It's like when an ugly guy asks you out and you tell him you have a boyfriend to spare his feelings instead of saying "I don't find you attractive, I'm sorry." When she's talking to that other boy, she says "Well if your mom found out I was talking to you, she'd be mad." Again, no ownership. She's saying that she wants to talk to him, BUT his mom would be mad, instead of saying "I hope you know how proud of you I am and how happy for you I am, but I can't talk to you right now. I'm very sorry, but it's not in my best interest to talk you any young male students. I hope you understand," and then walking away. She constantly makes it sound like she WOULD if only everyone wasn't preventing her. To a young boy, that means she's interested but SOCIETY says she can't. It wrong and it leads them on. Also, the fact that she wears short flouncy skirts that ride up to the crest of her butt cheeks when she sexily crosses her legs while sitting ON her desk instead of standing or in front of it is weird. She laughs at the comments about how good looking she is like she's flattered. It's like the difference between a teacher walking around the room looking over papers and another teacher with a low cut shirt on and her boobs pooping out, leaning over the students and looking at their papers. There shouldn't be any intention to attract the sexual interest of young boys. And it shouldn't be flattering. I'm sure secretly, inside, it feels good to know that any male thinks you're beautiful, but you shouldn't let it show and encourage it, and you shouldn't "sex it up" at work to instigate it. It's like she can't control herself. NO ONE is that naive! She knew what she was doing, and was flattered by the attention, but she just never thought it'd bite her in the ass. I know women like this in other professions too, and then they act surprised when things go south. I've also had teachers in school who always seemed to dress in sleazier clothes than the students. And of course, how does the principal approach that? Is he supposed to say "You can't sit that way cuz it's too sexy, or your skirt is too short."?? Then it'd be sexual harassment. I think they should be allowed to, though. She looks guilty as hell because she WAS instigating the attention, and enjoying it. If it was me, I'd take full responsibility by saying "I'm not attracted to you and you can't talk about this with me. It's inappropriate and disrespectful," not saying "I'm sorry but I'm married." That's not a "No" to any 16 yr old boy, and a grown woman knows it! She just didn't want the attention to stop. She even says "If I sent every boy to detention for those comments I'd spend all my time in detention," basically saying "I'm so sexy that all the guys hit on me so I just accept it as normal, cuz I could never stop it all." Yeah, you can stop it, by not wearing exposing clothes in front of young boys in puberty. Dress like a professional! And say "No" and own it, don't say "I can't because of (insert excuse)."

    I used to work in the school system as a substitute teacher and as a teacher's aide and this is the reason why I never wanted to work with the older school-age children. There was always a threat of things being misconstrued or someone lying about you and not only costing you your job, but sometimes, your freedom! They're too many ways to hurt someone and I did not need to deal with that.

    What a strange movie. Why would a teacher have to go to court over the suicide of her student? Proofing that the teacher was the lover of the student does not change anything. This movie was made for sensation only and it's story is proof of the desire for the destruction of innocent people's lives that is in the root of America since it was colonized.

    I don't think the teacher did anything wrong, but I also do feel so sad for the student who I don't think did anything wrong either. She was a kind heart and he was going through a depressing time that many high school students experience and so he mistook her comfort for more. But in reality I will say that the prosecutor made the better argument and if I had been a juror, although I believe her to be innocent, I would find her guilty based off of the testimonies alone.
