A Superior Court judge ordered two county school districts Wednesday to stop using public funds to build opposition to the proposed Parental Choice Initiative but rebuffed an attempt to keep school boards from taking a stand on the measure. Just three minutes into an afternoon hearing, Superior Court Judge C. Robert Jameson said he had already decided that he would not order local boards to rescind resolutions they have passed opposing the proposed ballot initiative.

I commend the Times for bringing to the attention of the business community the very critical and important issue of school choice. However, I would like to clarify that as dean of the USC School of Education, I serve in a variety of advisory roles. As such, my involvement with the Excellence Through Choice in Education League in no way should be construed as a personal or institutional endorsement of any particular plan. Any inference that I or USC support adoption of any particular proposal would be in error.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge issued a preliminary injunction Friday prohibiting the Los Angeles Unified School District from using public resources to criticize a proposed "parental choice" initiative. The ruling, issued by Judge Robert H.

Your Aug. 23 article, "Changing Schools--Any Way They Can," was exciting and sad. Westside parents trying to get their children a good education are taking their kids out of Los Angeles Unified and placing them into Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Culver City schools. The sad part is that these caring parents are made to feel like criminals. Because of a bureaucratic maze that makes school transfers difficult, many parents are providing false addresses and phone numbers to school officials so that they can get their children into better schools.
