Going bald for literacy

Literacy is an issue close to my heart, and I tend to cheer on any efforts to get kids reading. So when Principal Don Mrozik of John L. Sipley Elementary School in Woodridge, Illinois decided that shaving his head would be good incentive to encourage his kids to read, I cheer!

If 95 percent of Sipley students read at least 30 minutes a day between Oct. 14 and Dec. 5, Mrozik will go bald.
There are also other prizes for reading, including a Nook e-reader, but I'd like to think the chance to shave the principal bald is at least as big a draw as an e-reader.

Way to go, Principal Mrozik! Here's hoping you're head is smooth come December!

Edited to note a similar story I've linked to before. :-)
