"Teacher placed on leave for Hooters trip"

Odd News:

"Teacher placed on leave for Hooters trip"

(UPI) -- Officials with Phoenix schools said a music teacher has been placed on administrative leave for taking students to lunch at Hooters.

Judi Willis, spokeswoman for the district, said Mary Segall, a 23-year veteran of the district and choir director at Paradise Valley High School, was placed on leave after she took 40 students to eat at a downtown Hooters following a performance at the Arizona Center last week, The Arizona Republic reported Thursday.

Segall told the school's principal that Hooters was the only restaurant prepared to accommodate the large group.

"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."

The Web site for Hooters, which is famous for female servers in tank tops and skimpy shorts, says the restaurants aim to provide "a unique, entertaining dining experience … delivered by attractive, vivacious Hooters Girls."

Segal traveled to Washington in January with the school's choir and strings group to perform at one of President Barack Obama's inaugural events, "History in the Making: A Dream and a Change Inaugural Ball."
