Why are hats not allowed in school?
I can remember being in middle school and high school and always wanting to be able to wear a hat while I was walking through the hallways or sitting in class. To this day, I have always been a really big fan of wearing different types of hats whenever I go out, so it was no different when I would show up in the morning for school. I think the ban on hats has been around for as long as there have been schools, but I feel the reasoning behind the ban is pretty accurate, especially with all of the drama and violence that we tend to hear about going on with today’s youth.
One of the main reasons why kids are not allowed to wear hats in school anymore is the fact that the hats could be hiding a weapon or drugs which would definitely not be a good thing for the other kids or teachers in the building. It really is a shame that this is what people need to watch out for these days in our schools. It seems that this issue has not been going on for very long in the school system, but it is definitely starting to pick up the pace as more and more kids react with violence towards their fellow students.
I am all for the ban of wearing hats in today’s schools and feel that the safer that each and every child is, the better it will be for everyone in the long run. I think that we should also eventually look into installing metal detectors in all of the schools as well because you really can’t be overly safe these days. It hurts to think about children causing such violence like we have all seen on TV over the past few years, but the threat is very real and should not ever be taken lightly.
