ok, now i am convinced. the hooters waitress' outfit there exposes more than a student would ever expect to see on a high school campus
I don't have a problem with it.
With some of the raunch I have seen on the phones of neighbor high school kids, a Hooter waitress is actually quite mundane.

Never mind it apparently backfired as her daughter is pregnant.
I morally disapprove of Hooters' restaurants and I don't patronize them myself, but it wouldn't trouble me much if my high school age son or daughter were taken there on a school trip. High school students are adults and should be treated as such, and that means learning to deal with people whose moral standards fall short of their own; if their class in school votes to go to Hooters over their objections, that's something they will have to learn to deal with.
I'd be disappointed if I learned that they'd voted themselves to go to Hooters, but not so disappointed that I'd feel the need to do more than have a talk with them about modesty and decency-- the same talk I'd want to have with them if I learned in advance that the school trip would involve dining there.
By the same token, I wouldn't want any more from the teacher than a five minute conference in which to voice my disapproval. I think a suspension is a gross overreaction even if the students were younger; there is nothing here that warrants more than a formal letter of apology.

Let's pretend a teacher wanted to take the kids, say, to a neo-nazi headquarters to hear a lecture by its leader on how the Holocaust never happened. Perfectly legal, right? Why would anyone be so uptight and complain? Don't they want their child exposed to different ideas and beliefs? Why are parents so over protective?
High school students are not adults. They are not adults in the eyes of the law or in how most of them behave. I agree that they should not be treated as small children. I also know that some high school students can and do conduct themselves as adults and are given adult responsibilities by their parents. However considering that high school starts at age 14 - I would not consider most high school kids adults.
