A display in front of a Rosemont Middle School classroom reads, "Graphing a linear inequality. Graph the inequality as if it were an equation. y=mx+b."

In fact, many of them are actually smiling. This is Rosemont's Introduction to Algebra summer class for new seventh graders.

In response to my op-ed column of two weeks ago, LCUSD President Scott Tracy wrote a rebuttal column last week, “ Reasons to reject a charter district .” It is surprising that he is so unfamiliar with charter schools. Charter schools are popping up all across America. Tracy claims that “there is no charter district in the state of California that includes a high school.” This statement might give the impression that there are no charter high schools in our state.

With fall classes just barely underway and students coming to the realization they have to get back to studying again, the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board on Tuesday approved its revised budget for the 2004-2005 school year. The board initially had given a first reading to the budget with the expectation that a second reading denoting final approval would take place at the next regular board meeting on Sept. 21. However, John Kramar, interim assistant superintendent in charge of finances, told the board that if it waited until the next meeting, it would violate the state regulation to have the district's revised budget to the Los Angeles County Office Of Education within 45 days after the state budget is approved.
