At Walnut Park Elementary, a heavily Latino school in Huntington Park, administrators and teachers are preparing for the looming abolishment of bilingual education as if it were "the Big One." "We'd better be prepared with a plan, or chaos will break loose,' said Principal Kenneth Urbina. "We're not going to let that happen here." When voters approved Proposition 227 in June, they gave educators 60 days to revise curriculum, retrain and reassign teachers, and buy new textbooks.

"We will not spare any effort to try to change the current situation," said Huntington Park Mayor Rosario Marin told the Los Angeles Board of Education.

This graduation was not advertised on Nimitz Middle School's marquee. The honorees wore neither cap nor gown. They walked across no stage. But their collective achievement was no less significant than that of many other students--they were graduating from anger. Each of the 20 had earned the right to seek a "Chill Out" diploma through a painful series of mistakes and missteps that left them on the verge of being kicked out of the Huntington Park school.
