ok,
so i am a 17 year old girl who uses hats to tie my out fits together and all around i just like them. But when a teacher or principle takes off your hat while your walking down a hallway it is really irritating to me! An one of the most disrespectful things to do is take someones hat! from where i come from if you take someones hat off you are probably looking to get your butt kicked. And now we aren't *allowed* to wear hats in school, this is preventing self-expression for young people. And as far as the *disrespect* thing goes it all depends on whom you are with or their opinion on the debate. So i think it should be allowed it is a free country right?? NOPE.. because the restrictions the older society is putting on the younger generations. That isn't the only reason this country isn't exactly free. But the discussion on hand is weather or not people should be able to wear a hat in school. And as far as security reasons go that is just dumb. Not every one has the same hat people! you can identify a person by their hat as well as a sweatshirt or hair color. There is many different ways to identify someone! especially with all the new technology coming out. So let people wear their hats.

Okay, so why are you focusing on tying your outfit together instead of gathering yourself together by studying and getting proper educations. No one cares that you would get your butt kicked for taking off a hat where you're from. Hats are not appropriate in a school setting as I'm sure is pointed out in your school's Code of Conduct Handbook, and with you violating this rule, you deserve all consequences that follow.
Hats are not a way of self-expression and if you want to show your individuality, do it with appropriate, unique clothing and accessories such as necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc.
America is known to be a free country, but you have any common knowledge, you would know that "free" is a subjective term. Without laws and restrictions, there would be no society or civilization, so your "free" country is indeed not free. But we have rights that other countries do not have, and wearing a hat is not one of them. And as anyone knows, you have certain rights, but you cannot practice those rights if you are infringing upon another's rights.
Deal without the hat.

A good debater is an intellect, someone who knows what they're saying and how to say it effectively. And a hat doesn't effect anyone's education but why do you think you are special enough to be allowed to break a school rule? You are nobody relevant in the school. Wear a hat on your own time.

so far as i'm aware wearing a hat and having a warm head in winter doesn't negatively affect your education so let people keep their hats.

p.s. someone's ability to word their argument may make it more accessible to others but surely a good debater would be able to see through that and not just troll at them in the comments section.

Girl... You got issues to work out... Go home... Pick up a book on the English language (preferably kindergarten level)... And learn how to write. Then I need you to go look at any intellectual paper... Figure out how to propose an argument... Then we'll talk.
