What about Hoodies? – 102

By Chey Cheyney & Pav Wander

Chey and Pav, two experienced middle school teachers from the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, take listeners through the in’s and out’s of the field of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. Through their anecdotal, yet often comedic banter, laced with caring insightfulness, they take their audience into a conversation that is surely eye-opening and entertaining, while tackling some of the real, and ever-changing issues that exist in Education.

In Episode 102 of The Chey and Pav Show, the Dynamic Duo reflect on a specific item of clothing that has caused so much stir among educators in the school setting – and that is the hooded sweatshirt. Hoodies on students in the classroom have been contentious for quite some time, and Chey and Pav talk about the reasons why students should be allowed to wear them in class, while also discussing the reasons why sometimes they are not.
Chey and Pav bring many perspectives to the conversation and uncover the history of the “hoodie policy” that has existed in so many classrooms and educational spaces for so many years.
