Teacher sacrifices locks after students exceed reading quotas
Jaylynn Snider takes a razor to the head of Mark Stuckenschneider, a teacher at Pinnacle Canyon Academy. Stuckenschneider, called "Mr. S" at the school, challenged sixth graders to read 30 minutes every school day in January. Not only did the students read the time required for the challenge, but they exceeded it. The reading challenge was in addition to normal reading assignments and homework. In an assembly on Feb. 3, the studentbody watched as locks of hair fell to the floor. Stuckenschneider said he has always had long hair and was unsure of what to expect as a bald man.
