Rarely has anything been as aptly titled as the new Fox series "Yearbook." Premiering at 8:30 tonight on Channels 11 and 6, this nonfiction half hour, dwelling on a high school in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, gives you exactly what you get in a yearbook: moments, fleeting glimpses, snapshots in time, an episodic flip-through view of school days that lingers only until the next glossy page is turned.

Almost daily the media reports incidents of racial violence. For example, a recent story appeared about a 15-year-old Garden Grove high school student who endured 10 hours of surgery to sew the left side of her face back together. Her injuries were the result of what she says was a racially motivated attack with baseball bats and a broken piece of mirror.

For 17-year-old Andrea Chung, landing her first job downtown at Kidder, Peabody & Co. was a thrill, something more often achieved by MBA students than high school students. It was also alarming. Once, while recording market transactions at the brokerage last summer--a job that paid her $7 an hour--the senior at Los Angeles High School said a broker's illegible handwriting caused her to mistakenly punch in 1 million shares, instead of 100,000.

Four women who bucked tradition and chose jobs typically held by men encouraged a class of high-school students who are mothers to seek mechanical and technical jobs for the better pay. "Exciting jobs are out there for young women who will consider working in careers normally thought of as a man's world," said Sherlie Miller, a San Diego City College "gender equity coordinator."

January 15, 1990 | BONNIE MASPERO, Maspero is principal of Westminster High School.
As principal at Westminster High School, I am frequently asked, "Why, as educators, do we need to focus on students with a high-risk profile for dropping out? Why don't we concentrate on the students who want to learn and ignore the others?" The answers to these questions deal with issues of social equity and economics. The percentage of dropouts in California has remained fairly consistent during the past 20 years at approximately 30%.

Talk about an extended family with a global twist. The Lesters of Huntington Beach--Richard, 55, and Adorae, 54--already have a big clan in the usual manner. They have four married daughters, 10 grandchildren and enough other kinfolk to easily fill their neatly furnished, two-story suburban house at clan reunions. But the Lesters always seem to have room for one more. Like Philip and Lilian from Kenya. Geoffrey from Ghana. Eli from Brazil. Seyda from Turkey. Umberto from Italy.
