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.

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.
