Teacher Labels Classroom Ban on Hats, Hoodies in Classroom a Microaggression

A Michigan public high school mathematics teacher challenged the ban on students wearing hats and hoodies in the classroom as a “microaggression,” in an article for an “enlightened masculinity” blog.

Paul Hartzer, who teaches geometry at Hamtramck High School, according to his resume, argued that removing a hat indoors is “a European tradition, and many feel that expecting students of color to learn and follow this guideline is yet another way in which European ‘culture’ is shown as superior to their own heritage.”
