Clips & Tips
Long ago, this blog article originally caught my interest because having a rule for hats and hoodies to be removed inside the school building previously came up for discussion every year. I remember teachers saying they felt they were being aggressive when they were expected to enforce that rule. Same as many of the readers, I found some comments more interesting than the article itself. It’s clear to see how the article could inspire some worthwhile discussion, especially now that we are continually faced with microaggressions both in and out of school with the enforcement of Covid regulations. It would be an interesting exercise to rewrite the article from either perspective, whether in terms of people aggressively stopping us on the way through doors of stores in bigger cities, or in terms of individuals attacking us when we obediently enforce regulations set by outside organizations.
