    so fine...a parent objected...was it worth a suspension for the teacher? i think not. i just think this is wayyyyyyy overblown.

    The reason for the suspension is it was poor judgment on the part of the teacher. There are plenty of places that the teacher could have taken the kids that where much less likely to result in a parental complaint.

    Nothing in this thread has been mentioned about the women complaining about their job. This is about a teacher taking school kids to Hooters.


    So there's an age limit on viewing sexually appealing women???
    There is a responsibility on the part of the school to only participate in wholesome activities for the kids that attend them, to assist in raising respectful and well balanced citizens. Bringing high schoolers to a business establishment whose own employee manual stated the concept is based on SEX APPEAL is unwise, and totally unnecessary. Other choices were available and should have been exercised. Whatever happens outside the school environment the school cannot control, but it can and MUST control those decisions under its control. The school did its duty well!

    sure, the teacher could have taken them somewhere else...odds are that there might have been a couple of attractive women at this restaurant as well....is the teacher still guilty in your opinion of 'poor judgement' if she fed these kids in that restaurant as well??

    I'm sorry, allow me to dumb down my post since it seems to have slipped past you:

    The women who apply, of their own free will, to Hooters are objectifying themselves, of their own free will, when agreeing to work there. Thus, Hot women who get these jobs at Hooters enrage ugly women who do not work at Hooters and who could not get work at Hooters, and they then complain that Hooters objectifies women.

    capice?

    I wonder, there was talk of the kids being asked their opinion. And while I know the teacher is the "responsible adult" if the kids wanted to go then good on them. It's not like the teacher forced them to go to Hooters.

    They can see sexually appealing women all day every day without going into establishments whose business model involves displaying them like merchandise. The world is full of sexually appealing women who don't have to go out in public half-dressed in order to demonstrate the fact.

    All the other "family restaurants" that people are comparing here have dress codes that are more or less compatible with the dress codes in public schools-- notable exception being TGIFriday's because some schools are a little backward about students wearing those little buttons. The dress code for employees at Hooter's requires the servers to be dressed indecently because that is the primary appeal of the place.

    Ted Kennedy wanted to start his own chain of Hooters restaurants.....Unfortunately he didn't live long enough to realise his dream.

    Those tan-skin colored leggings are misleading! and those shirts leave NOTHING to the imagination! I'm surprised that when people eat there they don't get a plate full of areola when they bring out the food!

    I bet this Hooters place is responsible for a good number of sexually deviance in America.

    DOWN WITH HOOTERS! SAVE THE CHILDREN! SAVE DECENCY!
