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.
