Pro

The piercing on one student in no way affects, physically or mentally, the stabability of another student. Making piercings, except those located on the ears, agaist the rules of dress code, is completely ridiculous and uncalled for.

Con

It is within a school's legal right and authority, as an organization, to define and enforce a dress code. If there was a contract that you and/or your guardian signed and willingly agreed to that prohibited certain facial piercings, you must abide by those rules.

Dress codes do not violate your constitutional right of freedom of expression and have been accepted by the Supreme Court in cases such as Tinker v. Des Moines.

If a school deems a child's way of dressing innappropriate, offensive, harmful, or disruptive to someone's education, it is in their right to prohibit it.

The biggest reason that schools ban facial piercings, however, are usually because they believe they are unprofessional and do not support the idea that the school is trying to ready students for the work-force, in which many jobs do not accept visible body piercings or tattoos.

Thank you for reading, and I'm hoping for a good debate.

Although with the specific way the debate title is grammatically stated, the Con side would be saying "No, it shouldn't be against the rules", while Pro would be saying, "Yes, it should be against the rules", I understand that you think they should NOT be against the rules, and therefore, am debating that they can be against the rules.
