Federally Funded Hooters Field Trip

BY:

An Iowa teacher used federal funds to treat her colleagues to a meal at Hooters, EAGnews reports:

At the Vegas retreat in 2010, a Waterloo teacher "used taxpayer money at a Hooters restaurant, and others bought $30 steaks and submitted receipts that weren’t itemized so the district had no way of knowing what was bought," reports IowaWatchdog.org.

"In all, the district spent $32,910 (on the two trips), which included airfare, hotel rooms and registration for the conferences to train staff on ways to improve schools with high poverty and large minority-student populations."

A small percentage of the funds spent on the trip came from a federal grant aimed at improving to failing schools.
