The state Board of Education on Wednesday voted down a request by the city of Lomita to break away from the Los Angeles Unified School District. The 7-4 vote dealt a serious blow to several groups trying to leave the nation's second-largest school district. The Committee to Unify Lomita Schools has made two major efforts since 1985 to carve out its own district, which would have three schools and 2,000 students.

Eshelman Avenue Elementary School in Lomita would appear to have the cards stacked against it: Most pupils come from low-income households, and many speak little or no English at home. So how did the school handily outscore its peers statewide on the Stanford 9? Principal Winnie Washington gives much of the credit to "direct instruction," a highly structured, step-by-step curriculum that requires teachers and students to follow interactive scripts.

For the second time, the racial mix of students in Lomita's schools may affect the city's bid to secede from the Los Angeles Unified School District. But this time the state Board of Education will compare the racial mix of the proposed Lomita Unified School District with the mix of the city's population, a comparison the board didn't make in denying a similar bid by Lomita in 1987.

In a setback to groups trying to break away from Los Angeles city schools, proponents of a new district for the South Bay city of Lomita failed to muster crucial support from the State Board of Education on Thursday. Lomita's request to hold an election on its proposal to carve a 2,000-student, three-school system from the Los Angeles Unified School District garnered only three yes votes--half of what it needed--from the 11-member board.
