28. What matters most is the quality of instruction.
When I taught in a private school I had to remove my earring. It was a minor annoyance, but I complied.

I feel differently about tongue rings. One day a student broke the rules and wore a tongue stud (whatever they call it) and nearly choked to death in class (not my class). She had to to be taken to the ER and had a tracheotomy. Now she has a hideous scar on her neck and damaged vocal chords for life.

Someone who is teaching should NOT wear a tongue ring. Period. It interferes with speech and proper pronunciation, which is especially important when teaching English and foreign languages.
