Lice #1 Reason for School Absenteeism, Hair Fairies Salon Success

Detangling Problem One US City at a Time

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chicago school system, known for being one of the nation's most challenged, will have the opportunity to save $2.5 million, which is threatened by a little known, but expensive problem: lice infestation. According to entrepreneur Maria Botham, lice infestation is the #1 reason for school absenteeism, and on average it costs the U.S. public school system over $500 million every year.
