That is why the teacher showed poor judgment.
    We aren't talking 8 year olds here...we are talking high school kids who could go to Hooters any time that they want with their parents consent or behind their parents back. Hooters is an ALL AGE restaurant....they don't need "Adult Supervision" to get in.....sheeeesh!

    Here is what the Hooters employee manual says about the restaurant:


    Hooters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    No, teachers should not be taking underage kids to a restaurant where sex appeal of the waitresses IS the concept of the business, if there are more appropriate places available, and in this case there always are more appropriate places. I'm not saying lock the teacher up, teacher committed no crime, but teacher exercised poor judgment.

    OMG....!!! Exposing high school kids to an environment where "joking and entertaining conversations are commonplace."

    We can't have that.

    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.
    As soon as high schools ban the same shorts and t-shirts for cheerleaders and drill team, dance squads....you might have a point.

    Note the bolded part, it's important. This kid did not have parental permission. I am not at all talking about what kind of place Hooters is, only pointing out that taking kids there without parental permission is poor judgment.

    These are HIGH SCHOOL KIDS....not 8 year olds.

    These kids can go to HOOTERS anytime they want (Without parental consent). Why? Because its an all-age restaurant.

    I find it rather ironic the cross political idealogy views that this topic has raised.

    Why is it that many of my liberal counterparts are taking the "conservative" view here....while many of the conservatives are much more "liberal"?

    Just askin?

    Why is it conservative to think children should have final say about what is right for their children? You keep twisting the conversation to what you think is important, while missing what others of us see as the key aspect.

    Disagree. Drill team is typically not scantily clad, nor do they engage in rapid athletic moves that NECESSITATE short or fitted tops to perform their moves.

    Cheerleaders and dance squads wear less clothing, to facilitate the rapid athletic moves they perform. There is a legitimate reason to be dressed that way for their performance. Do you think a cheerleader or dance team member could perform their routines in blue jeans and bulky sweatshirts? I don't. That is different than a Hooters waitress, who does not perform rapid athletic moves at all, and whose employer states the concept of the restaurant is "sex appeal".

    The important question is not what the attire is, the question is what is the intent of the attire that is the issue, and Hooters states it is "sex appeal". The public school system has no business supporting such a business. If a parent chooses to allow their teens to go to Hooters, that's a totally different issue, but the school should stay out of the business of going to a business whose concept is sex appeal.
