Hooded sweatshirts are allowing students to stay warm, comfortable, and text on their cell phones inside the pockets. I hope the school realizes that even after banning hoodies, kids will be ready with a new technique to access their phones. One teen points out that students don't even need to look at their phones because they all memorize the keyboard. As impressive that may sound to most adults, that skill directly reflects the technological and digital mindset of our youth. It should be a wake-up call that we need to invite certain technologies into the classroom, rather than fear them. A silly hooded sweatshirt ban is only a quick fix to avoid the issue.
