Los Angeles County transportation officials set the stage Thursday for a showdown with Beverly Hills leaders over a small portion of the much-anticipated Westside subway extension. Officials on Thursday certified environmental documents for the entire $5.6-billion project, moving a step closer to construction of nine miles of rail that would mostly run underneath Wilshire Boulevard. But the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority board only formally approved the first 3.9 miles of the project — as far west as La Cienega Boulevard — because of a request for a hearing from the city of Beverly Hills, where many school officials and city leaders hope to derail efforts to build part of the line underneath Beverly Hills High School.

Re "Diversity 90210," editorial, April 7 Beverly Hills High School's ethnic makeup reflects the residents of the surrounding neighborhood. The same is true of schools in East L.A., South L.A. and Monterey Park, yet I have never heard of a need to diversify any of those schools. Forced diversity seems like a great idea, but it doesn't work. Most children and adults alike tend to form cliques with those of the same culture. Just as wonderful neighborhood enclaves of certain ethnic groups naturally form and exist in almost every major American city, so they will within the microcosm of a school campus.
