The hoodie, a staple of student fashion, is being banned at some New Jersey schools.

Some schools are telling students to leave their hooded sweatshirts in their lockers unless they want to be suspended.

The schools say students wearing hoods can conceal their identities from hallway cameras that might catch them cutting class or breaking into a locker.

But parents like Eileen Ballard of Atlantic County's Hamilton Township say it's unfair because enforcement is so complicated. She also says the sweatshirts can be a good way to for their kids stay warm.
