    Well, not everyone is like you. I've gone to Hooters just to eat their food before; I thought their wings were okay. Is that really so unbelievable!? Do you think the only reason Hooters stays in business is because of their waitresses? It is a successful restaurant, after all...

    Maybe they wanted some beer with their wings, too, but they didn't get any. That teacher is just a disappointment all the way around.

    lol

    Hooters is a damn restaurant. People eat there all the time. How freaking up-tight do you have to be to get upset over something like this!?

    Also, why are people making a big deal out of the Hooters outfit? It's like something a volleyball player would wear.

    I'm just relieved she didn't take them to the beach. They might have seen girls in bathing suits!!!

    I think the Hooter girls should be fired for not taking their clothes off

    you have seized on the crux of the matter
    the teacher was suspended because the parent, and the school system, do not condone the attire worn by the hooters' waitresses
    would forcing them to wear burkas make it better

    You are right. You mention nothing about its appropriateness for high schoolers, brought there by there teacher. The Hooters 2006 employee agreement said its main concept was "female sex appeal". Now, it may just be a restaurant, but its not just any restaurant.

    In public school, a teacher has a responsibility to each student not to put the student in situations that offend the student. The teacher has a responsibility to the parents not to put the students in situations that violate the moral teaching of the parents.

    I assume some parents beside me believe that it is wrong to objectify women as sex objects. That's what Hooters does. Is it so blatant that every moral person in america objects to Hooters? No, its not that bad. I have been to Hooters twice, once with a group of guys from work, and once with one other guy from work. I have never been back, and I don't plan to. Below average food for above average prices, marketed on the sex appeal of the girls. I'd rather have a good hamburger somewhere else.

    It is not that bad of a place, but better choices for a school group were available in downtown Phoenix. Just go someplace else. The administration suspended the teacher as they should have, for exercising poor judgment. Nobody charged her with a crime, nobody said she can't teach anymore. It wasn't a horrible judgment error, but it was a minor error and she suffers a minor punishment. Good job by the school administration.

    He has done nothing of the sort. Clothing has more context than simply the person wearing it. I suppose you would support girls wearing bathing suits to their high school classes? How about the teachers doing the same?

    Deliberately charging an atmosphere with sexuality where that sexuality is traditionally absent: That is the appeal of Hooters. That is the crux of the matter with regard to the teacher's judgement.
