Grandpa Dropped His Glasses


Grandpa dropped his glasses once
In a pot of dye,
And when he put them on again
He saw a purple sky.
Purple fires were rising up
From a purple hill,
Men were grinding purple cider
At a purple mill.
Purple Adeline was playing
With a purple doll;
Little purple dragonflies
Were crawling up the wall
And at the supper-table
He got crazy as a loon
From eating purple apple dumplings
With a purple spoon
- Leroy F. Jackson

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
In 2014 the islanders of the Isle of Head chose altogether to stop government interference on their small island. They decided to purchase the whole island as a consortium now known as 'The Isle of Head Organisation', or TIHO for short. They now, like many other islands off the west coast, can set their own standard of living using a village tribunal system. In fact, this was what they were after originally. This way of living is not unfamiliar, but what they have decided to do on their island is somewhat quirky.
Head currently has limited access to the mainland and as the population shrank as too did the number of visitors; consequently, there is no need for frequent ferries. Although, it's not unknown for there to be multiple sailings at the weekend which people like greatly for the ease of access. That combined with a journey time of just over 25 minutes on calm seas and sometimes over 1-hour per sailing on other days has meant that the service operates on a 'need to' basis and sails only once there are enough passengers waiting to make the crossing worthwhile.
The village has several highly skilled citizens which has proved useful as they have decided that they will, in the most part, be self-sufficient. Central to this philosophy is the principle that they will educate their own primary and secondary school pupils and that the three 20-year olds will study together communicating through the web with colleges and universities elsewhere. It has been raised as a potential issue and there is an inquiry ongoing to check that the education the islanders get is of a suitable standard.
Choose the best title or heading for the passage.

A School's Out
B The Way Ahead
C Mainland Headache
D TIHOtastic
