  • If a student has social anxiety that hood could help them get through they day to day activities students go to

    Some students, like myself, have sever social anxiety and going through the day to day life of a student can be taxing and can even cause multiple panic attacks and if a single hood on their head can help them by "hiding behind it" so they feel as if they have something protecting them from other students and their cruel judgment then by all means they should be aloud to have a hood

  • The consequences of banning hoods

    Say we do ban hoods, after this probably all child hoodies wouldn't be able to sell, this would be a serious impact towards many clothing companies, since many of them have a lot of hoodies in stock also, coats with hoodies will also have serious trouble selling. Banning Hoodies in school also means no letting hoodies sell at all.

  • What is the distraction about wearing a hood?

    If it is apart of my clothing then I should be able to wear it. That is like saying girls shouldn't be allowed to wear yoga pants. It all depends on who you are and why you have such grudge against hoods. If you don't like them then don't look at them.

  • Should students be able to wear hats and hoods inside?

    Students wake up
    every day, get ready for
    school, go to school, do
    work, come home from
    school, do up to hours
    of homework, and then
    go to bed only to repeat
    the cycle the next day.
    It seems like a lot, but
    somehow we manage.
    Since most of us spend
    at leas
    t 13 years of our
    lives
    in school, doesn’t it
    seem reasonable for us
    to be comfortable and
    look the way we want
    when we’re there? I
    personally don’t think it’
    s
    too much to ask.

  • Why should they not?

    Its just a way of dressing... If some dumb people take it as being "disrespectful" they obviously have some underlying issue they need to solve on their own, and not take it out on some already miserable kid. I've grown up wearing hoodies always, even in the summer when its like 90 degrees out. All I want is to be left in peace, and my teachers always had an issue about it.

  • Hoodies in schools

    Students in all classes should be able to wear hoodies in class. Not all students use hoodies to sleep in class, sleeping in class is a problem but, students should have the freedom to wear there hoodies in class, schools should let students wear whatever they want in class, coming from a student, it isn't fair for students not be able to wear hoodies in class. Hoodies are comfy and should be able to be worn in class. Students have the freedom to say and wear whatever they want.

  • School Safety issue

    Not only is it disrespectful but identification is an issue with a hoodie on. To many non school activities happening that teachers and cameras need to see who and what is happening. Faces need to been seen at all times. After being told over a 100 times a year.. You would think the kids would get it!!

  • It is up to the school or district.

    In my lifetime A LOT of fights have happen over hoods.For example, kids r immature and they will put stuff in other peoples hood. Even if a fight arises and one person has a hood on the other person doesn't, the person that doesn't would go straight. Sooooooo....... That is why i think there should be hoodies in schools.

  • It affects criminal mindset

    Criminals, like gang members or others, wear something that will hide their identity. A hood is one of those things. A person, student or stranger, who wears a hood at school could hardly be identified because his head is covered. Consequently, that person can accomplish a crime (stealing, etc) with ease and confidence because he knows that he may not be identified.

    But if we disallow hoods at school, the chances for above-mentioned scenario to happen are decreased, because people would think twice without hood in their head.

  • You should be able to wear hoodies in school

    Some people be leave that if they have a special hoodie or jacket they might do something out of the ordinary something that they don't normally do like get a 100% on a test or get better grades in all of their class,but its all in their head that if they don't have it on they might do bad and get bad grades

  • It's up to the school

    It's about appearance, decency, looking professional, etc. I'm sure most people can agree that hoods are far from professional. Besides, why would you want to have your hood on indoors anyway.



    P.S. I'm pretty sure most schools don't allow yoga pants. There a time and place for having your ass popping out or looking like a thug, and school just isn't one of them.

  • How is this act disrespectful?

    Hoods are apart of a clothing item. I do not see how this is such a disrespectful act. My face is clearly visible and i can still learn properly and participate just as well. Teachers think students may be smuggling things under hoods such as illegal items but if that were the case, they would clearly be visible. Teachers need to realize that every student in a public school in America should have the right to wear hoods. Nobody pays attention to the back or top of my head like WTF!!!

  • Hoodies Are not the issue

    Whatever the reason, Schools have started to ban hoodies, With little to no reasoning.
    Listening to music seems to be the reason, yet this would be the same result as wearing a long sleeved shirts.
    Another issue is that many schools had allowed them in the past with no further issues. They bribe us into not wearing them now with, "If you All are good, We will allow them later into the year". Here we are, End of year, Still banned hoodies.
    Many jackets with the same insulation of hoodies, but without hoods, are hard to find. Many stores have hoodies targeting many of the schools without the ban. But very rarely have hood-less jackets.

  • Respectful high expectations

    We are suppose to aim higher and be prepared for work when leaving school. How will we know how to dress properly for high end jobs if we have wore a hoody all our days. Couldn't see a public school wearing hoodies and they are the ones that get the jobs. We should aim higher and look smarter also dressing smarter makes us feel a little smarter

  • School is about learning and promoting a learning environment. .

    If you read many of the "pro" reasons provided they are about shutting out the outside world- that is now what school is about. Teachers want to make sure children are engaged, paying attention , listening (no ear buds) , making eye contact...All of which can he hampered by wearing a hood

Not in class, though.
