    This thread should show you that for some, Hooters is not a place they would want their kids taken. Since some are going to be offended, why take the chance as a teacher? While I personally doubt I would have a problem with a kid of mine being taken there(and any chance of that would have more to do with alcohol being served), to suggest that for some it is an inappropriate place for kids is obvious just from some of the replies in this thread.
    Uh.....Alcohol is served at most restaurants.....


    and....let me give you a hint. High school kids are doing a lot more than going to Hooters...with or without your consent.

    Uh...not really. Best food in town is at a restaurant that does not serve alcohol.

    Irrelevant. If the parents of those kids whose parents object get caught going to Hooters without consent, I bet there would be consequences.

    Are we seriously going to have the school submit it to parents every time kids go on a trip? Seriously? I can only imagine...some parent will object to TGI Fridays because of the acronym....some will object to Chilis because they have a bar....some will object to Carl's Jr...because the founder is a right-wing evangelical nut job.

    Seriously people.....this is an ALL AGE establishment....and we are talking about HIGH SCHOOL Kids....

    Maybe we should have them all pack a lunch and dinner for each day of the trip and avoid any controversy at all.

    Yes, I am seriously saying this. It's up to a parent to raise kids, not the schools, and this is exactly why there are permission slips. I never knew thinking parents should decide what is appropriate for their kids made you a conservative, but if that is the case, so be it. I guess I am just not as pure a liberal as you...

    Some high school students are doing a lot more than going to hooters, some are not. It does not make any difference what choice the teen makes on their own. The issue is what choice the SCHOOL makes. Now given that there ARE restaurants that do not promote sex appeal as their primary motif, why should the school select a venue that objectivizes women? They should not, and they told the teacher so. Good for the school!

    Yes...permission slips to go on the trip....but you have to give the teacher AND the student a little lee-way. You'd have a 50 page permission slip if you had to accommodate every little whim.

    Its not a matter of conservative or liberal. I just find it interesting that so many "liberals" are up in the air over this.

    Its all a matter of age appropriate. Hooters is complete suitable for high school kids. If it weren't, there would be an 18 or over or 21 and over policy.

    The students made the choice, not the school. Again....if you think that high school kids are not going to Hooters....you don't want to know what they are doing that is worse.

    Please...I was in high school 30 years ago....and me and my friends were doing a LOT more than going to Hooters....just sayin.

    So then...are you suggesting that schools should not be allowed to patronize any restaurant on a school trip that serve alcohol. Regardless of the fact that it isn't being served to the kids?

    C'mon Disney, can't you see that by taking this poor, innocent, naive child to Hooters, that teacher has effectively gone over the Parent's head and for what?! Not to teach them a valuable lesson, mind you, Oh NO! She took the children, poor, vulnerable children, to a HOOTERS! A HOOTERS! The place reeks of sex and debauchery! No responsible parent in their RIGHT MIND would EVER let their child go to HOOTERS! Especially under adult supervision from someone as unqualified as a High School Teacher! They should be in the classroom reading their Recommended Books from the Safe Schools Czar where they can't get into any trouble and their innocence...is maintained!

    OH! WHAT A WORLD! WHAT A WORLD!
