JoAnn Kemp arrives at her Ball Junior High School computer science classroom at 5 a.m. daily to meet the children of parents who must be at work by sunrise. Her day usually ends after 5 p.m., when she is done working with any child who needs a hand with a lesson, or with her work in a program that has lowered the school's annual dropout rate from 11.7% to 3.9% in recent years.

Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign discovered Friday what Hollywood has known for years: The tiny town of Fillmore is a picture-perfect backdrop for an old-fashioned political rally. Pulling into the station on a train draped in red, white and blue bunting, Kemp addressed a boisterous crowd from the back of the same rail car used by actor Anthony Hopkins in the filming of Oliver Stone's "Nixon."

On a day when a cheering crowd of about 2,500 gathered to celebrate the birthday homecoming of Fillmore's favorite daughter, it seemed as if most people had rediscovered some relationship to Joanne Kemp. High school pals. Friends of her parents. Former teachers. "I think she has to be the most famous [Fillmore native]," said Barbara Dosien, 69, of Santa Paula, who grew up in Fillmore and attended the town's Presbyterian Church along with the former Joanne Main and the rest of her family.

You could almost see the question marks hovering over Joanne Kemp as she wondered just how many (and what kind of) embraces to publicly bestow on her husband, Jack, after his speech at the Republican convention--and then, which way to exit the stage. Her little minuet of uncertainty was refreshingly real--which is one way Kemp is described by those who know her.

There are 32 children in my daughter's kindergarten class. This is standard in California's public schools. This is insane. This has been going on for a while. Last week, 127 school districts from throughout the state came together to file a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court against the great state of California. The school districts, including eight in Orange County, charge that our kids are being denied their constitutional right to a decent education.
