If Bob Dole was reaching out to young people when he appeared before a throng of teenagers at Chaminade College Preparatory High School here Wednesday, he missed the mark with many in the audience. Most of the Republican presidential candidate's anti-drug message spoke to the students' parents, some of whom packed into the school auditorium to hear Dole speak during his second visit to the San Fernando Valley this year.

It's mid-June. School's out. Now what? For college students, the answer is almost anything. Bolstered by a resurgent economy, the number of summer jobs and internships available to area college students is approaching pre-recession highs, job analysts said. And many positions are still unfilled. Creative college students can finagle summer jobs, especially unpaid ones, in almost any field through perseverance and networking.

It wasn't students, of course, who scurried to the restrooms to mop their damp, puffy eyes after watching scene upon heart-wrenching scene of self-sacrifice, of small, private victories in the battle for the hearts and minds of youth, and of middle-age epiphanies. Some, in fact, were overheard to say it was "dumb." But others--even those who came reluctantly at their parents' urging--were surprised to find they liked a story told from the teacher's point of view.

December 2, 1995 | SUE CLARK, Sue Clarke, who lives in Newport Beach, has been a high school counselor for 15 years
Several years ago I was a guidance counselor for a strongly academic high school. The pressure to maintain a high grade point average and class ranking was intense. One day a former grad stopped in for a visit. I liked him in spite of the fact that he was a known cheater. (People without guilt are often charming and likeable.) He had stoped by that day to ask me to keep an eye on his younger brother, a freshman who was feeling overwhelmed by the stress of a demanding school.

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that high-school athletes may be tested randomly for drugs without any prior suspicion of drug use, as long as all members are subject to the same test. The four dissenting justices argued against allowing any kind of wide-scale suspicionless searches. The majority argued, however, that student athletes choose a role with reduced privacy. KATHY SEAL talked with athletes, non-athletes and high-school principals about the ruling.

Like its namesake, John Twomey's new play, "Teachers' Lounge," wasn't built for teen-agers. But Twomey, a New York high school teacher and author, says he's willing to give older kids a look inside, and hopes they'll learn a thing or two from the experience. Receiving its world premiere Tuesday through Feb. 6 at Laguna Playhouse's Moulton Theater, "Teachers' Lounge" focuses on the interaction between seven teachers in the faculty lounge of a fictional New York high school.

Tony Wang is a senior at Kennedy High School in La Palma who plans to study engineering after graduation. The story of his arrival in the United States was prepared by Abby Fung, a junior at Kennedy. On July 11, 1990, I arrived by plane in Los Angeles from my birthplace of Kaohsiung, in Taiwan. Although it was my parents who wanted me to move here for educational purposes, they chose to stay behind in Taiwan. I had heard that there was less homework, easier tests and no school uniforms in America, but more importantly, I had heard that everyone could go to college.
