I think banning piercings at schools is just an unbeliavably hypocrite act. If some people can't see nose rings etc. beautiful, it should be their opinion only and not anybody else's concern. I have my nose pierced, but that doesn't affect my opinion. And if nose/eye-brow/lip/navel piercings are banned, why aren't the use of earrings too? Some people are weird indeed. I think there are a plenty of more important things for school bureaucrats to concentrate on, and one of the most important thing should be the prevention of teasing among pupils. But oh - the way the pupils are wearing clothes, having piercings, or for example wearing scarves as a sign of their religion in France... Those things are so unwanted that they have to be banned in the first place - oh no, hypocrites rule the schools.
