Caption with photo in print edition: Erik Burmeister asked for it, and he got it. Hillview School eighth-grader Andrew gives his principal's head a close shave on April 5 while students Madeline, left, and Gaby watch. The students were among the four top-ranked achievers in the school's test Acceleration Model program, begun in January to help kids who are struggling with math and reading.
