Boston schools to ban hoodies

Might as well start the drama training early, so that all of these kids can grow up to play lead roles in Security Theater.

Citing safety and decorum, Randolph Public Schools is poised to ban hoodies later this month, along with baseball caps and other nonreligious headcoverings, from middle and high school classrooms and hallways.

Hoodies pose a safety threat, area school officials say, for several reasons. Students, perhaps after doing something wrong, can make a quick, anonymous exit from school by shielding their faces from security cameras. Nonstudents can blend in and sneak in and out of the school. Also, students can hide contraband more easily.
