When I used to teach in Buffalo (many years ago) I was told that it also violates NY State health codes to wear hats in school. I have never researched that to confirm, so it might be off.

Yes thats true!
In other words, it just doesnt look good. I mean, imagine your a teacher and you have 34 kids and every single one of them wore hats, how would you feel??

Ok... maybe it disrespects some people, but hats are like an article of clothing, i think they should be worn... And responding to Nick C, if i was the teacher i wouldn't do anything, I mean whats the difference between having a hat and having no hat? The rule is much too strict, I mean what would people do with their fitted caps? I mean they spend good money just to look good and they're restricted to wear it? I say probably its just another random school rule just like banning cell phones...

it doesn't just disrespect some people...its a common rule of courtesy. If you don't take of your hat your basically telling the person that you don't want to be there and are just dying to get out- that you don't even need to remove your winter clothing because you won't be staying for long. And besides that, why in the world would you need to wear a hat indoors. Does it snow indoors? Is it cold? They overheat tech as it is. And in terms of a fashion statement...well then I could say a corset is a fashion statement too and walk around in school in lingerie something that is extremely inappropriate. (i am just making an example...i would never do that, lol)

Both rules have logical reasons behind their implementation. I don't agree with the cell phone ban myself, but I think that the ban on hats is appropriate not only because of respect, but because it is a distraction. School is not about making a fashion statement, it is about learning.

Well maybe you haven't been in a senario of being a teacher, but if you had then I'm sure you might understand.
In addition to that you dont necessarily need to "look good" in school. You just have to wear clean cloths and use deodorant. School is a place to learn, its not a fashion show. And the cell phone ban has both good and bad impact on the student body. There's enough evidence to prove why phones should be banned and as well as not being banned. But lets just stay on topic here.

There are some noneducational things that you do in school that will be helpful to you in the future. One of these is wearing hats. You do not wear a hat when you eat at a dinner table, or when you work at an office.

I'm sure someone may argue "I eat with my hat on." Heh. I don't really like seeing someone keep a hat on in school because it gives off the impression that the person is "too cool for school."

Yea, but still hats are like an article of clothing. Saying you can't wear hats is like saying you can't wear sneakers or shoes or something on your feet. And about the cell phone issue... ok maybe they're different issues and i'm not commenting anymore on the cell phones cuz its off topic...

But sneakers are necessary and hats are not. Religious headpieces are allowed in Tech because they serve a purpose, I really don't see how a hat serves a purpose INSIDE of Tech.

If you think that wearing hats is a necessity Inside of tech then you can do that. Wear your hat to Gym, wear it to lunch wear it to which over class you please to wear it in. Also wear your hat when you walk into the principals office or the deans office. HATS ARE NOT TO BE WORN IN SCHOOL. FINAL.

I don't want to go off topic with this post, but I have to point out that hats go on top of your head and do not go over your face. That would be a ski mask, and the last thing we need is people coming to school in ski masks.

I hate how hats can be worn for religious purposes. You either totally allow hats or totally band them, religion should not get special priveliges.

ACtually religion should get special privaleges. And religious people do not wear hats, but rather "religious headpieces." There's a difference and it is important. If a religious person is not allowed to wear their headpiece, they might not go to school. Then what have we accomplished by doing this?

I think this is one of the dumbest discussions. Everyone knows that when you go somewhere you take your hat off as a sign of respect. Anyone that doesn't understand this needs to get in touch with civilization.

Actually there is at least one teacher at Tech who wears a hat for religious purposes. It's an actual hat (a different hat everyday, actually) but its purpose serves to cover the head for religious reasons.
