So you're a teacher who takes four high school cheerleaders on a field trip to a gay male strip club that serves them alcohol, and suddenly you're fired? It just doesn't seem fair.
Lori Epperson, who taught at Edgewood High School in Trenton, said that while she did take the young women to Club Masque in Dayton, she had received permission from all their parents. One of the students is her daughter.
The women drank at the club and became intoxicated. Epperson said that was the result of their encounter with an acquaintance at the club who bought them shots of liquor and cosmopolitans.
All the cheerleaders are seniors at the high school and were all 17 or 18 years old. The club’s website says that patrons must be 18 to enter, and 21 to drink.
