so my best friend got her hat taken away today. the school rule says no hats are to be worn during school hours, but simply holding it or having it with you is ok. either way, this really REALLY obnoxious teacher told her she's taking it, regardless of the fact my friend wasn't even wearing it when this happened. my friend is told to take her hat off all the time but, shouldn't the first offense of having something taken only be for the rest of the school day? this teacher is straight up REFUSING to give it back. i asked the teacher if my friend will get the hat back, the teacher says she might not which made me so mad i was shaking. my friend starts swearing and i started feeling REALLY bad for her because she paid for the hat with her own money and the school is telling her she can't have it back. this teacher is annoying like that and she treats a LOT of students like that, especially students she doesn't even know.

so later in the day, around our 8th period, she goes to my friend in the hall and asks if she knows how many times she was asked to take her hat off. my friend says she doesn't know, and the teacher says she shouldn't get it back because she doesn't know. what, is she supposed to be keeping tally marks on her hand to say how many times she was told to put her hat away? get a new tattoo every time? STUPID. which is why i really hate the teachers in my school.

the rule for cell phones in my school is:

1st offence: taken for the day
2nd offence: taken for the week
3rd offence +: taken for the year

and those can be counted as cheating devices. for a hat, it's so much less of a big deal that it should only be taken for the day since is the first time she's had it taken.

and the worst part, is that we're on break until next tuesday which is why i think the teacher took it. that way my friends mom cant come in and swear the teacher out, which i KNOW my friend's mom would do. i've been to her house enough times.

what do you think? is this fair or unfair?

UPDATE: i looked online for said teacher's website. i know what room she teaches in and i know what period, it's just that literally NONE of the teachers have their images posted to my school's website.

well we can look at both sides. There are rules that are to be followed at all times. It seems based on your story that your friend did go according to the rules at one point. This Teacher who took it has no right to keep it for herself. If you have issues with a teacher it's best to arrange a meeting with the principal. This is morally wrong, although the teacher may hold the hat temporarily it doesn't mean she has the right to hold it permanently. Just go talk with the principal as I said earlier. Hopefully this is issue is resolved.

my friend didn't text me back but she said she's going to get her mom to go into the school and talk to them. hopefully she'll get her stuff back.

Definitely not fair. Like you said, your friend paid for the hat with her own money, so the teacher has no right to keep it.

In my opinion, this is absolutely nowhere near fair, and needs to be discussed with a head of guidance, or someone of greater authority. No matter how many times a student has been asked to take off his/her hat, I don't believe the teacher has the right to take a students possessions, especially when they put time and effort into making the money to pay for the hat.
Sure, maybe the teacher was aggravated that your friend has been asked to put it away multiple times, and I understand if she has it taken away, but only during school hours. With the phone example you brought up, you mentioned how they can be used as devices for cheating, and I 100% agree with the punishments there, but (like you said) a phone and a hat are completely different things.
Furthermore, your friend was not wearing the hat at the time of the teacher getting mad at her, so that alone is a reason to be brought up if it's discussed with the teacher. Unless she made a new rule about hats not being allowed in hands, I don't see the issue with carrying it around. If the hat alone is her issue, and if your friend really has been called upon multiple times, why doesn't she just simply send her outside, and ask her to put the hat there, and to only get it when school is over.

I personally have have way too many issues over my middle school years with teachers being ignorant and incredibly biased and unfair towards some, but very lenient with others, so this was written fuelled by the anger that I have had with these simple issues. Too many teachers are taking small "crimes" to the extreme and in time I realized that all you need is a strong group of students to stand up to the teacher and to tell him/her that what they are doing is wrong, and that you are being hurt by it.

In the same way, try to get a few friends together, go to the teacher after class and talk about the issues you are having with who she is treating students, rather the silly hat policy she has implemented, and how she has gotten one student not only angry, but deeply saddened by the thought of losing something they've bought with their own money. Try getting parents involved, and if this is a re-occuring issue, or if you notice this particular teacher being biased against a certain group of people (doesn't have to be sexist, racist, it can simply be being lenient to an entire class except for maybe 5 students), then make sure you mention it to a trusted adult (preferably your parents or a principal), and have a small conference with the teacher. Like I mentioned before explain that what she did was hypocritical (your friend was simply holding the hat, not even wearing it) and that she would like to get the hat back for reasons already mentioned.

A lot of school rules need to be changed, and this is a simple one. As I've already mentioned, sure having a phone out can be used for malicious efforts, but I never saw ANYONE have an issue, or get harmed by a hat. Unless teachers give proper reasons for enforcing rules as such, and unless your friend has hurt anyone with that hat (which I 100% doubt) I don't see why even wearing a hat should go against school policies.

that's what i said. however, this teacher believes she has ALL THE POWER. apparently she's like this to all students. she wrote some kid up today. this kid is a troublemaker but a LOT of students don't like her. i'm trying to find her on ratemyteachers.com.

if she could have hurt someone with a hat, she would have already. it's an assassin's creed hat, and that's like her favorite thing ever. i see why she's upset, because it's ac AND she paid for it.

this teacher is making up rules as she goes along. i CHECKED the school handbook, NOWHERE does it say teachers can confiscate a hat. a cell phone? that's in there and can be taken away, which is understandable. a HAT? the only thing it says is students can't be WEARING them during school hours which is between 7:40 and 2:53. my friend wasn't wearing it to begin with. she was in a really bad mood all day since then and i feel really awful for her since she did nothing wrong.

As for the thread, it really depends. I can't say anything because I do not know who this teacher is and who your friend is. I'm sure there is more to the story aswell. If there isn't more, I would say the teacher is a rough one but it is in her full abilities to confiscate the hat as it is a school law.

That's exactly what I mean. If that hat has done nothing to hurt or offend anyone why is it being taken away? If the rule is not stated in the book, then yes, for sure have her parents approach the teacher about it, because thats not how the school rules are supposed to work.

To an extent. I beg to differ, as there is no way the teacher has the authority to take away a students hat forever UNLESS (as I have said before) the hat has been used against someone. Sounds silly but unless she walked someone with it, I don't see a reason why a teacher is allowed to take it away. As well, the rule is not even in the rule book, so under no circumstance should that teacher have the right to confiscate the hat forever. Possibly for a smaller time period, but not to take it from her and not give it back.

better?

either way, it ISN'T a school rule to take someone's hat. i read that section in the handbook. "students are asked not to wear hats during school hours. please have them away during the day". so basically, you can have them with you, just can't wear them.

and there's NOTHING in there about taking hats. it's part of the dress code. if someone violates the dress code they don't take away their shorts permanently. in fact, the dress code is so ignored that it's violated EVERY DAY and no one does a thing about it.

we're on break. this teacher is probably making up some bogus story about how bad my friend was but we had SEVERAL witnesses to show she wasn't even wearing the hat. i'm making it available for my friend to call me and a few of our other friends so the school can know that she was not wearing the hat, but just holding it.

and the teacher can't take the hat permanently. my best friend said she either wants them to pay for the hat or give her the hat back. one or the other.

Hats are also banned in my school, no wearing them in class. :ninja:

At least, that teacher should just take it for a day or two, and not forever... that's like "omg i want the hat lets wait until she wears it so i can take it kkk" villain plan type lol.

Even Hats! Even Shades and more accessories so i confirm ur teacher or her/his teacher

it's likely because we're tech kids. tech kids aren't exactly treated nicely by home school teachers. they act like we're only there to get out of gym, or because we're too stupid, which is incredibly untrue since i'm in a very high english class and i'm also doing well in all of my classes.

i checked the school handbook and violators of the dress code are to have their items sent home with their parents. like, for shorts, the student is supposed to have their mom or dad called in to bring a change of pants, have the kid change, and have the shorts sent home. it's part of the dress code so it should be treated as such.

my friend is demanding either money comp from the school or her hat back, whichever they feel like doing. i hope this teacher gets in trouble for doing this.

Yeah, that's really unfair.

Hats aren't allowed at our school either, and they will be taken away if worn but returned at the end of the day to the student. That teacher is really unfair and mean. Putting aside the fact that she bought it with her money, to take it away and refuse to give it back is kind of against the Constitution. Although this isn't searching, there's a thing called reasonable cause. For example, specific suspicious activity. Your friend had not done anything suspicious so there should be no reason.

I would put more here but it seems I don't have a lot of time to spend on the forums.

my friend said she's going to have her mom call the school to ask them about it. she tried having her other friend get the hat from the office at the end of the day, but that didn't work out. my friend can't exactly leave to go to the office at the end of the day because she'll be too late to her bus. she is here pretty early in the morning, so hopefully that means she'll get it back on tuesday when we go back from break.

I think it is unfair. The teacher should have followed the school system and returned your friend's hat at the end of the day. Instead, the teacher abused her authority and decided not to return the hat, which is unfair.

I also have similar teachers like this in school. I have one teacher that randomly scolds students when she has nothing better to do.

It's both fair and unfair, to be honest.

First off, if you've known the teacher for a long time and know about his/her background, you'll understand why he/she has that kind of attitude. (I have a teacher similar to that, very strict, annoying but we later realize she was treated poorly by her teacher when she was young. Anyways...)

Knowing the background of the teacher, it is fair if your friend was repeatedly asked to remove her cap off during school hours. Whether she likes it or not. She has to follow school policies, doing it once, twice can be tolerated but if she was asked repeatedly within a short period of time, it cannot be tolerated. School isn't all about teaching Mathematics and Sciences, they also want to teach you discipline (which is VERY IMPORTANT when you arrive to the real world.)

On the other hand, the teacher has to follow protocols that the school made. He/She can't go whilly-nilly all over to discipline students.

If your friend wants to get her cap back, it's best to talk to the principal about the issue. The two will talk about it and find what was the problem and solve it. Otherwise, your friend's parents can schedule a conference with the principal about the matter.

so later in the day, around our 8th period, she goes to my friend in the hall and asks if she knows how many times she was asked to take her hat off. my friend says she doesn't know, and the teacher says she shouldn't get it back because she doesn't know. what, is she supposed to be keeping tally marks on her hand to say how many times she was told to put her hat away? get a new tattoo every time? STUPID. which is why i really hate the teachers in my school.

the rule for cell phones in my school is:

1st offence: taken for the day
2nd offence: taken for the week
3rd offence +: taken for the year

and those can be counted as cheating devices. for a hat, it's so much less of a big deal that it should only be taken for the day since is the first time she's had it taken.

and the worst part, is that we're on break until next tuesday which is why i think the teacher took it. that way my friends mom cant come in and swear the teacher out, which i KNOW my friend's mom would do. i've been to her house enough times.

No hats in school? Um...what the hell kind of rule is this...

i have NO idea why it's even there. in my opinion, hats should just be allowed because, i mean, who is someone hurting with a HAT? if it's distracting to other students, i don't see how it's my problem. you focus more on my hat than the class material, you fail. that's your problem, not mine.

if it's a respect issue, then i guess it's sort of understandable, but what would we even be disrespecting? if it's a whole pledge of allegiance issue, then yes, take it off during the pledge. at our school we aren't obligated to say the pledge but it should still be taken off as a sign of respect, imo. but honestly, i don't see why anyone would need to take it off. it's a hat. my friend is going to hopefully get it back. this teacher is the type of teacher who will take your phone if she so much as sees a lump in your pocket the size of a phone, even if it's not your phone.

and fyi-- even my strictest teacher doesn't care if you have your phone in your pocket. he doesn't even take it if it goes off.

Hats are actually a big deal. hats and hoodies. People use them to conceal their identity for various (and obvious) reasons. Some teachers just enforce rules more than others because they have nothing better to do. Your friend was only fanning the flames by cussing the teacher out. But if you think something she did was unlawful, report her to your principal. and to everyone thinking the hat rule is bs, schools have overhead cameras. hats (especially baseball caps have no facial visibility from above unless angles a certain way. so if someone robbed the school, they use those to cover their face and get away. I know this stuff because I'm still in school, a ghetto school, and rules are highly enforced (we can't have backpacks on during the school day because they take up too much space. liek wut) and in my area, there has been maybe, 1-2 shootings. Rules are always there for a reason. If you don't want to get punished, then just follow them.

Your teacher stole a student's property because they broke a minor rule, it isn't right. I could be sympathetic to the teacher if she'd just kept it until the end of the day, but she just upright took it away. At that point it's theft, a real law, not a petty school policy.

Rules are always there for a reason. If you don't want to get punished, then just follow them.

she didn't swear out the teacher, she just swore because she was mad. i told her i was really sorry and even during science she was really mad, i just reassured her the teacher could get in trouble for theft because the rule says hats are meant to go home with the dress code violator's legal guardian the same day as the incident.

I feel bad for your friend. My friend wears a hat too, the reason why he wears was to keep his long hair from getting in his face. You can't really concentrate when your hair's getting in the way so I know the pain. You can also tell your friend to say this to your teacher:

Since I didn't witness the event personally, I cannot determine what actually happened. Assuming you didn't exaggerate a portion of the story, I disagree with what disciplinary actions the teacher has decided to take. Although she didn't handle the situation as well as she should have, your friend must have broken boundaries at some point. The teacher doesn't have the authority to confiscate or permanently keep the hat in her possession. Your reactions to the punishment your friend received was not necessary nor appropriate by any means either. It's fine to get angry at someone else's decisions, but you need to control and learn to manage your anger properly.

I would strongly recommend having a conversation with your principle, or some other adult or teacher. Discuss your issue with them and let them know of your displeasure.

If hats are not allowed, then why bother carrying one around? Even if you're not wearing it, it's probably not a good idea to have it out. That friend was not smart. Your teacher is probably planning to sell that hat on craigslist so she can buy a little pot, because she can't afford any off of her own salary. 116300

Definitely not fair. Like you said, your friend paid for the hat with her own money, so the teacher has no right to keep it.

I think the teacher want the hat so the teacher keep it ! LOL

If you're waving a hat around in front of an obnoxious teacher, it's bound to be taken away. Just tell your friend to tell her parents. They'll walk up to the teacher and your friend will probably get the hat back.
hats are banned because of people like these

it is NOT that easy. Your parents have to sign papers, then transfer your current grades, and might have to move houses which will worsen the situation. It is not easy to just transfer schools.

exactly. plus, we go to the best school in the area, so i don't see why we'd want to move.

Hats are actually a big deal. hats and hoodies. People use them to conceal their identity for various (and obvious) reasons. Some teachers just enforce rules more than others because they have nothing better to do. Your friend was only fanning the flames by cussing the teacher out. But if you think something she did was unlawful, report her to your principal. and to everyone thinking the hat rule is bs, schools have overhead cameras. hats (especially baseball caps have no facial visibility from above unless angles a certain way. so if someone robbed the school, they use those to cover their face and get away.

That reminds me. Headbands aren't allowed in my school, and a few months ago, some kids decided to start a protest of the unfairness that people can't wear headbands. "UH, UH, UH, LETZ WER HEDBANDZ TEW SCOOL TOMMUROW SO, SO, SO, THE TEECHERS CANT TELL US 2 TAKE DEM OFF" It completely fell flat after a day, and people got bored and forgot about the whole thing, lmao.
