In some areas, enrollment again is booming and teachers are in short supply--nowhere more than in Santa Ana, Orange County's biggest, most diverse, fastest-growing district.

The bright spot in Pius X High School's most recent loss, other than that a touchdown finally was scored to end a bleak succession of five shutouts, was a 125-pound running back.
