Minister Evarist Bartolo has announced that as from today, earrings are banned from being worn to school for both girls and boys.
This in the light of a controversy in the past week, where a parents complained of discrimination when her son was asked not to wear his earring to school.
Minister Bartolo said that one does not achieve equality among sexes with earrings, but by respecting each other. He also added that for health and safety reasons, earrings were going to be banned from schools. Minister Bartolo insisted that this is not an issue of equality.
What is your say on this?
