Can anyone tell me what is wrong with Crenshaw High School demanding that its students be in class on time ("Crenshaw High Tardy Policy Gets Poor Grade From Some," June 5)? This is invaluable training for the outside world where punctuality is a basic requirement to obtain and hold a job. Does Jacinto Rhines think he is doing his daughter a service by attempting to undermine the school that is trying to teach her this virtue? Will Mr. Rhines also file a lawsuit against an employer who fires his daughter for being repeatedly late to work?

It pains Jacinto Rhines to see every kid in South Los Angeles using so much of the white stuff. He wrings his hands. They're killing themselves, he says. It sucks the energy out of them, makes them do crazy things. Rhines isn't talking about cocaine. He's talking about sugar. Much of society has chosen to express its concern for children by telling them to say no to drugs. Rhines, a trim, goateed man of 48, digs deeper.

Nature's Hotline, a Los Angeles-based organization aimed at promoting self-esteem through good nutrition, has awarded $100 scholarships to five Los Angeles County high school students. The nonprofit group, which uses rap presentations to reach more than l7,000 school children every year, gears its message toward fighting drug use and gang activity, particularly in the black community, said Jacinto Anielle Rhines Jr., a self-taught nutritionist who founded the organization in 1978.

Like a prophet out of Watts, Jacinto Rhines' words musically spilled out his messages of respect and self-love in a Jefferson High classroom. Students, clapping to the rhythm of the rap beat, read along from a booklet the poetic instructor handed out. It's so true and so real, every living heart should feel, joy and pride to be alive! Put that self-hate jive, aside . . . Do you like yourself?

How can any responsible parent or educator approve of tardy policies that result in students missing more classroom time ("Crenshaw High Praised for Tardy Policy," June 19)? Does it make sense to sacrifice 45 remaining minutes of classroom education to punish five to 10 minutes of tardiness? As a parent, I have a long history of making sure my children are punctual at school. My son, who was one of the few students to graduate with honors from Crenshaw in 1992, received an award for perfect attendance in both the 10th and 11th grades.

Have the parents of students at Crenshaw High who are protesting the school's policy on tardiness and absence considered that such behavior is rude and inconsiderate to both the teacher and the other students in the class? ("Angry Over Absences," June 5). This kind of behavior, if not corrected in high school, is liable to continue when the student gets a job--and it certainly continues (with negative effects) if that student goes on to places of higher education. As a community college teacher, I can attest to the fact that such conduct is widespread.

Two dozen parents are challenging a stringent tardy policy at Crenshaw High School, saying students who are already struggling academically are being punished unfairly and ineffectively. Jacinto Rhines, a 54-year-old writer and youth lecturer, is leading the effort to change the policy, under which students may be locked out of class and sent to a tardy room for counseling.
