Compton : Future of School System Topic of Community Forum

October 08, 1992

One week after the Compton Unified School District narrowly escaped a state takeover, residents will get a chance to question school officials about the school system and its future.

The Compton branch of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People will sponsor a community forum on local schools at 6:15 this evening in the board room of the district headquarters, 620 S. Tamarind Ave.

The topic will be "The Direction of Education in Compton: Where Do We Go From Here?" said Royce W. Esters, president of the Compton NAACP.

The forum was scheduled in the wake of Gov. Pete Wilson's decision to veto a bill that would have authorized a state takeover of the district because of poor test scores and a high number of dropouts. Wilson said his veto was a vote of confidence for local control, but added that he would consider similar legislation in the future if student achievement does not improve.
