Minneapolis teacher, Starri Hedges, is now dealing with upset parents after taking kids from middle to high school age on a field trip to a local adults-only emporium named Smitten Kitten. The store itself offers educational workshops which the students took part in from a library section of the store that was separate, but apparently in view of, the products they offer. Angry parents were not aware of the trip before it took place but since the school in question is a K-12 private school, it is unclear whether any laws were broken.

Hedges herself admitted to the Star Tribune that she "unfortunately didn't’ communicate well enough with parents ahead of time”." While that was unquestionably poor judgment, the rest of the issues surrounding the trip remain in a grey area. Investigation is ongoing to the conditions of the shop and context of the trip to determine if Hedges or the store violated any laws by bringing the students there.
