We all have personal preferences and live our lives with different values from each other. I am a teacher and have seen clear examples of this in the teaching profession. Some teachers prefer to wear jeans while others prefer dressing up with dress pants and tie. I have seen the head football coach in a school I taught at in Tennessee, fall asleep at his desk while supposedly teaching a World Geography class.

Of course most teachers who do not observe the guidelines have tenure and so are insulated from the possibility of being fired. This sets a double standard or an environment of hypocrisy within the organization.
