Blue & Orange & Red All Over

A fairly new strategy for increasing test scores is the student challenge (you know, the Double Dare physical challenge). Teachers agree to shave their heads, wear dresses, kiss pigs, etc. if students manage to pass the test.

One of my colleagues agreed to dye his hair in school colors -- orange and blue -- if his kiddos did well. And they did! He showed up last week in BRIGHT University of Florida colors.

He says kids in the hall asked, "Did you dye your hair that color?"

Uhh... what do you think!?
