    This to me is the relevant portion. The parents should decide what is right for their kids, and when in doubt, you don't take chances. McDonalds or a Pizza Hut are unglamorous but the kids will appreciate it, and no one will likely complain.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that is probably not a high school cheerleader. Can't prove it, but it's a strong suspicion.

    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.

    and it's a bogus suspension, assuming there was no minimum age of entry which was not achieved by the students who went ... indicating it was open to the public

    In my wife's school there is a parent the won't allow her son to watch certain movies, read certain books, and of course she thinks Obama is the devil incarnate and didn't him to hear Obama's speech to the school children a few months ago.

    Never mind it apparently backfired as her daughter is pregnant.

    Re: Hooters - should this teacher be suspended for this?

    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.

    And yes, I am serious. Parents like this make me want to punch them (the parents, not the kids...or the hooters).
    I would love to punch folks who feel as if it is no big deal to try and undermind parents to a point where they do not ask if it is ok to take children places their parents do not approve of..

    What does this have to do with Hooters? Do you feel as if parents should have no control over what their children are exposed to?

    And if you think only people on the right feel as if they should have parental control? You are fooling yourself.

    Right. These folks who are so indignant that some parents have the audacity to want to have some input into what their children do or see need to put the shoe on the other foot.

    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.
