    No, I am saying that the school should get permission from the parents first.

    For the record, I am not "up in arms" about this. I wouldn't care if it was my kid. The liberal in me cares about the other parents who may care, as is their right.

    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.
    I was in high school 40 years ago, graduated in 1970. I did much worse also, on my own. The school did not aid or abet me in the decisions, and they were correct then, and they are correct now to suspend the teacher.

    What students choose to do on their own is just that, their own. The school's responsibility is to promote wholesome environments for the kids. Hooters is not it, as the restaurant admits is main concept is "sex appeal". The fact that some teens go there in no way makes it a good decision for the school, as you and I both admit as teens we made choices that were worse than those the school would have made. The school should not have supported our poor decisions then, nor should it today. The day the school administrators start letting the students set the policies of wholesome behavior, they are doomed. Can't have it, the kids are not old enough to make good decisions all the time, as you and I admit we didn't make good decisions all the time.

    Even pizza joints sell alcohol.

    Can we really compare 1970's High School and Societal Norms and Taboos with this situation. A lot has changed in 40 years. But then again one could say a lot hasn't changed as well.

    This is where I think people are making the wrong turn. The question is not about "norms", but about parental rights. Whether Hooter's is a family restaurant, or whether it is appropriate for kids is entirely up to parents. I would not object in this case, but the next time a teacher assumes, it might be something I do object to.

    Agree'd. The reality of the situation which is the Parent being overbearing, but also the fact that they have every right because it is their child after all.

    So any time that school kids go on a school trip you would require parental permission before they eat in any establishment that serves liquor?
    Seriously?

    I guess Sizzler is out then.
