None of the injuries to him or others was critical. Shortly before 1 p.

As many as 50 high school students, some of them the brightest in the school, could face criminal charges as well as academic discipline from an investigation into a cheating scandal that involves stolen copies of upcoming tests. Shirley Peterson, principal of Patrick Henry High School, said Friday that a still-unknown number of students apparently were using duplicate master keys to enter a copying room where the tests are kept.

A high school teacher in this San Diego suburb has been told she will not be allowed to teach any more this semester after a confrontation with school officials over her request to show the movie "Zoot Suit" to her 11th-grade students. Reiko Obata said she wanted to show "Zoot Suit," a story of prejudice against Chicanos in Los Angeles during World War II, as a way to counteract animosity toward Mexican Americans at predominantly white Santana High School.

It is the job of the parents to educate their children about sex and about the consequences. I don't think it's the schools' responsibility to educate students on morals and values. The schools are already trying to do enough. It's their job to each us math and English. One-night stands are called "scams" at my school. I think it's very interesting that (when they do this) girls are called sluts, but guys are called studs.

Track and field athletes from the San Diego Section, notorious for misfortune at the Reebok/CIF Championships, appear to be doomed to bad luck once again. And this time before the meet has even begun. Several area runners, ranked among the nation's fastest, are matched against athletes ranked as the fastest . But there figure to be a few San Diego shoo-ins--and even a dark horse--when the meet begins at 3 p.m. Friday at Cerritos College in Norwalk.

What a homecoming they might have at San Diego High this year. San Diego's football team is 4-0. The last time the Cavemen had this kind of a start, Elvis Presley had four top-10 hits. The alumni have been waiting 32 years for a season like this. It was 1959, and the homecoming crowds at Balboa Stadium were anywhere from 15,000 to 28,000. Back then, the alumni didn't miss a game. San Diego football games were a big attraction for the entire city.

A three-month police undercover drug investigation into sales at sites near city schools has led to the arrests of 23 people, San Diego police said Wednesday. The investigation ended in May, but police delayed announcement of the arrests while officers sought dealers who were still at large, police spokesman Bill Robinson said. Most of the 23 were arrested in connection with marijuana sales. The investigation began in March and focused on drug dealers at sites near schools that were frequented by students, including fast-food restaurants and convenience stores, Robinson said.
