    I guess they are out too.

    Only McDonalds and Chuck E Cheese are appropriate for some.

    Sounds like you don't want the schools to do anything. Seriously....I was joking when I said make the kids pack their own meals for every trip...but it sounds like that is what you are suggesting.

    It was inappropriate. Furthermore, just because students can do it with their friends is hardly a justification for the behavior of the educator. The educator is held to a higher standard of propriety, and as such, has to acknowledge the intellectual and extracurricular barriers involved in education. A high school age student certainly has the ability to go to a movie theater containing a rated R film, but showing the same film in class rightly has added constraints and a justification for its showing.

    Not only are teachers upheld to intellectual standards for themselves and their students, but also as role model. The education system responds in part to the demands of its parents and community.

    Was the punishment harsh? Perhaps. Does the notion of punishment make sense? Absolutely.

    In this age of teachers boning students and running drugs, I think she deserves a pass on this one considering what she COULD have done.

    The one that always bothered me was the instructor who was fired for accidentally typing in the wrong website address in the address bar, and was "porn stormed" in the time when it happened to me in front of my parents when I misspelled Metallica for "metallica.com" (I think I had two t's instead of just one). Porn spam was all the rage back then, and you could get it from doing almost anything on the internet. It was ridiculous back then, and it's still a ridiculous decision now.

    I hope this wasn't already posted. I scrolled thru and didn't see it.
    From Hooters website:

    The element of female sex appeal is prevalent in the restaurants, and the company believes the Hooters Girl is as socially acceptable as a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, or a Radio City Rockette...
    Hooters characterizes itself as a neighborhood place, not a typical family restaurant. Sixty-eight percent of customers are male, most between the ages of 25-54. Hooters does not market itself to families, but they do patronize the restaurants. Ten percent of the parties we serve have children in them. Hooters is in the hospitality business and provides the best possible service to anyone coming through the door. For this reason, the chain offers a children's menu.

    Hooters.com

    So there you have it. Not a family restaurant. 90% of the parties don't bring kids. I think that teacher showed poor judgement. The teen boys probably loved it. Which is why it was poor judgement on her part. But she should have received a lighter punishment, imo.

    You know, Hooters has other things besides waitresses. Maybe they went because they liked the wings. I know I've gone just to eat their wings.

    Yeah, right. Their wings sucked every time I went to one (perhaps only 4-5 times).

    I just kept thinking maybe I had a bad day or night. Nope. I just did not like the food!

    That reminds me. Other joints started copying the Hooters uniform idea, just a tad. Buffalo Wild Wings comes to mind. The differences might be in the attire, but I attribute the differences towards quality of wings. Yum, freaking yum.
