For many of the students on the chartered bus that collided with a FedEx freight truck Thursday, the rare all-expenses-paid trip was the first time anyone in their family had been courted by a college. The students were part of a 20-year-old program called Preview Plus that seeks to enroll low-income students and those who are the first in their families to attend college. Many of them are Latino and African American, although the state ban on affirmative action forbids public universities from using race or ethnicity to specifically target students for enrollment.

From muck-a-mucks to minions, employees at Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters Monday were reassessing what their roles might be in the new, slimmed-down district. As he stood photocopying staff-development information, Anthony Jackson said he, for one, would relish returning to the classroom.

At high schools across Southern California, there was fear, prayers and anxiety as students, teachers and parents awaited word on the fate of teenagers on the bus that crashed in Northern California Thursday night, killing 10 people.

Marisa and her twin sister Marisol, both seniors, chose to skip the dance to visit Humboldt State University, said a classmate who gave only his first name, Elmer.
