Excelling in math, reading, and barbering

Caption with photo in print edition: Erik Burmeister asked for it, and he got it. Hillview School eighth-grader Andrew gives his principal's head a close shave on April 5 while students Madeline, left, and Gaby watch. The students were among the four top-ranked achievers in the school's test Acceleration Model program, begun in January to help kids who are struggling with math and reading. The principal had promised that the program's top achievers could shave his head, and he's a man of his word.
