Can a student be infested with head lice from sharing headphones at school?

There is a low risk of transfer while using spongy headphones that cover the ear (i-Pod). These headphones make it more likely that a louse can grip the spongy portion with the clawed leg. The school headphones are dense and slippery. They do not provide a good media for transfer.
