C’mon son. They knew they were out of pocket for this one.
Parents at a Florida elementary school are up in arms after a Hooters waitress was brought in to talk about her job to a group of special needs kids during a career event.
“It’s just the wrong message,” Ashley Dominicci, 32, whose son is a sixth-grader at Calvin A. Hunsinger School in Clearwater, told the St. Petersburg Times.
“I feel like we’re telling them (the students) that you’re the bad kids, and this is all you’ll be in life.”
Dominicci said she wasn’t knocking the busty wing-slingers – “They’re very hard-working,” she said — but that she thought students at the school should set higher goals for themselves.
School principal Stephani Bessette told Dominicci in an email that the point of waitress Brittany Morgan’s appearance was to show that working at a restaurant was a good way to pay for college, the Times reported.
“Working as a waiter or waitress in order to achieve higher goals should be commended,” Bessette wrote, according to the Times.
Morgan said she understood why parents might be upset, but that there wasn’t anything inappropriate about her talk.
Besides, she left the hot pants and tank top at home.
“Most of us are going to school,” Morgan told the Times. “We’re aspiring to do other things in life. This isn’t our career.”
Earlier this month, parents at a California elementary school were similarly outraged after adult film star Sasha Grey read a book a group of first- and -third grade students during a literacy event.
What is going on in this world? Really, the principal thought THIS was a good idea? No wonder our kids are being outperformed by students from across the world. SMH.
