Students in remote Terlingua, Texas, no longer have to endure the nation's longest school bus commute. A high school will open there today, sparing them the 80-mile ride to the nearest high school in Alpine. The trip began as early as 5:30 a.m. for students in Terlingua, 300 miles southeast of El Paso, and other nearby communities. School days were stretched into 12-hour ordeals.

Beginning this week, students wearing clunky, lace-up Doc Martens boots were sent home.

I applaud Robert Levine's "Schools: Standards Are Important, but Money Is Vital" (Opinion, May 21). As a member of the California High School Exit Exam Advisory Panel, I, along with others, have listened to testimony from many experts as we have worked to implement a testing of "standards."
