Pennsylvania Problem Piercings Probed

It's a great time to be on the Clarion-Limestone School Board in Clarion County, Pennsylvania. Especially if you like controversy. Come this fall, Sarah Hileman, who will be a senior, says she plans to pursue changing what she and other students perceive as an outdated policy concerning body piercings. Last year, at least seven students were suspended because they wore facial piercings other than earrings and refused to remove them, she said.

The C-L policy also bans spiked jewelry of any kind. It's based on the No Child Left Behind Except the Inappropriately Jeweled Act.

Just look at the piercing at the left. It's guaranteed to bring down the student's (and the school's) PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment) testing scores.

As a former wearer of an eyebrow piercing that had to be heavily bandaged at work, I think I can honestly say that I feel like I lost about 20 IQ points by being around people that intolerant.
