A Savannah, Georgia high school will not give vocational studies credit to a 17-year-old senior who works at a local restaurant, Hooters. While Laura Williams wears long pants and a collared shirt as a Hooters hostess — there’s a non-racy photo to prove it — Hooters is known for scantily clad staffers. Inappropriate, says the superintendent. The school board agreed.
“I know we live in a world of Britney Spears, but I don’t see us giving school credit in that atmosphere,” said school board member Vera Jones.
The girl will keep the job and do without the credit. Her father is considering — naturally — a lawsuit.
Aaron Sharp, manager of the Savannah Hooters, has said the school superintendent overreacted. He said his restaurant strives for a family atmosphere that includes balloons for children and a kids’ menu.
Balloons. I wonder how they use them. And who takes the kids to Hooters. Divorced dads?
