    Default Arizona Teacher on leave for taking kids to Hooters

    A Paradise Valley High School music teacher whose students performed at one of President's Barack Obama inauguration events has been put on administrative leave after taking 40 students to eat at a Hooters in downtown Phoenix.

    Mary Segall, a choir director at the northeast Phoenix school, accompanied choral students at a performance at Arizona Center last week. While there, the students ate lunch at the Hooters restaurant, said Judi Willis, spokeswoman for the district.

    Segall told her principal that the restaurant, known for its busty waitresses in tight shirts and orange shorts, was the only place that could accommodate a group of that size. She could not be reached for comment.

    "We believe that there are many venues for lunch for a large group of people in the downtown Phoenix area," Willis said. "There could have been a choice that might have been more appropriate, given that it was a school-day event with a school employee in charge."

    Mike McNeill, vice president of marketing for Hooters USA, said he was unfamiliar with the incident and could not comment.

    According to Hooters' Web site, each restaurant aims to provide diners with "a unique, entertaining dining experience . . . delivered by attractive, vivacious Hooters Girls."

    Although parents knew students would be performing at Arizona Center, it is unclear whether they knew that their children would eat lunch at the restaurant.

    "I know that it was a complete surprise to the principal," Willis said.

    Several adults who aren't employees of the district accompanied Segall and the students on the trip. Willis said she does not know whether the adults challenged Segall's decision.

    Segall, who has taught in the district for more than 23 years, was planning to retire at the end of January before the incident. She took the school choir and strings group to Washington, D.C., in January to perform at the "History in the Making: A Dream and a Change Inaugural Ball."

    Willis said she does not know whether Segall will return to the district before she retires.

    "I am sure that someone is covering her classes," she said.

    Jeez... people just waiting to be offended about something. They have Booster chairs at Hooters, and you're likely to see more skin at a high school swim meet.

    I guess when I have kids of my own I'll feel completely pissed off and outraged that some teacher, who instead of being their teacher and authority figure decides he wants to be "cool," takes them to Hooters.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I honestly think the teacher didn't think it would be a big deal, I personally don't think it was. But I wouldn't do that in her position, assuming people might get upset.

    Hooters. I mean, come on - if the teacher had taken them to Rachels or something like that, but Hooters? Yeah, it's not Beef O'Brady's and maybe not the first choice of a place I'd take a bunch of - well, I don't see where it says how old the kids were - but still - it's only Hooters. Worst that probably should've happened unless multiple parents complained was she gets pulled aside and told "Please don't do that again".

    This article is just more proof that our society as a whole is wound up too fuckin' tight.

    Hooter's is a FAMILY RESTAURANT. It's not a strip joint.

    It is much more disturbing seeing adults freaking out over their kids seeing breasts than it is for a child to actually see a breast.
    (Refer to Janet Jackson debacle of 2004)
    Oh and the breasts are covered too. Double Whammy.

    People are stupid. This teacher taught for 23 years and just like that she is put on administrative leave. Wow.


    Kids aren't allowed to see or even be in the presence of clothed well endowed, busty women but when it comes to kids being allowed to watch a sporting event where every commercial break is FILLED with ads for Viagra and Levitra, that is PERFECTLY FINE.


    Did I mention people are stupid?

    perhaps Hooters is a family restaurant, but she didn't take her family there, she took other parents children there

    big difference...there are parents who obviously didn't want their kids taken to hooters and that's why she's in trouble


    so, what was the problem? did the health department finally close the McDonalds? that's where most school trips end up in these parts.

    and isn't hooters a little expensive for feeding an entire high school choir? those kids must have had a bikini car wash to raise funds for their trip.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    She took other parents children to a RESTAURANT. End of story. There is NOTHING about Hooters that is inappropriate. NOTHING.
