Justice Street Elementary School is one the Board of Education chose to have built of metal. Also, it is the last school built in the Valley without air conditioning. In my classroom, in September, the temperature has reached 113 degrees. Due to the above, I would think board members would realize they have no right to say this school should be open in August, when it will be even hotter. They say air conditioning would cost $4,000 for each room to be wired and provided.

Rosemarie Bernier, the librarian at Hamilton High School, sees hundreds of students every day. She knows them by their study habits, the questions they ask and the books they read. Joelle and Johanna love to run their fingers through old books. We find them in the stacks, admiring the beautiful, old binding of a Jules Verne novel. Another group of "regulars" gathers at a table. Nahum and Livingston leaf through sheets of sample calculus problems, while Antonio reads the final chapters of Toni Morrison's great novel "Song of Solomon.

The Sun Valley Library was one of only four Valley libraries that opened quickly after the Jan. 17 quake.

The superintendent of the Huntington Beach Union High School District this week revised his budget-cutting recommendations, saving the jobs of two librarians whose jobs he had proposed to eliminate. Supt. David Hagen, who restored the librarian positions at the request of the Board of Trustees, now plans instead to cut $50,000 in district equipment and supplies, an area that has been badly depleted in recent years.

The Los Angeles Unified School District's proposed teacher layoffs would mean a sharp reduction in popular vocational, homemaking and business skills classes--subjects educators say are the only reason many students stay in school.
