Angered by the criticism of his leadership in his top auditor's report on the Belmont Learning Complex, Los Angeles schools Supt. Ruben Zacarias said Wednesday he is planning to consult an attorney on whether to file a defamation suit. Such a suit, if filed, would create a highly unusual drama in which the superintendent battles one of his own appointees in court.

I am grateful to M. Greavu Jr. (Letters, Sept. 29) for raising an interesting issue. When Secretary of Education William J. Bennett, whose responsibility extends to more than one form of education in our country, recognizes the contribution of schools other than public schools, he is considered by the writer to be a lobbyist on their behalf. Conversely, when the secretary advances the cause of public schools, which he seems to do quite consistently, is he then thought to be a lobbyist on their behalf?

The unnamed female teacher was working as a substitute instructor at Camp Holton on Feb. 6 when the attack took place in a classroom while other students were present, according to authorities. She was taken to a local hospital after the attack, where she was treated for minor injuries and released the same day.

The school system has averted a potential budget crisis by revising this year's spending plan, officials said. Compton Unified had to approve a revised 1992-93 budget last week after the county rejected the spending plan recently adopted by the school board. County budget analysts had sent back the budget because the district failed to account for about $1.5 million in potential debts and omitted required attendance and financial reports, among other things.

Eight San Fernando Valley schools will benefit from an injection of state funds to prevent student gang involvement. The money stems from anti-gang legislation by Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Sylmar) in 1988. Katz initially proposed the Gang Risk Intervention Program (GRIP) as a pilot project, but last year the Legislature passed the bill and made the program permanent.

Unchecked deficit spending and reduced state funding have forced the Duarte Unified School District to cut the stipends and benefits of employees. In mid-December, the Duarte district had $164 in its reserve fund, rather than the $580,000 it projected, said Mike Baker, a consultant with the Los Angeles County Department of Education. State law requires school districts to set aside 3% of their budgets in reserve.

It's bad enough when uninformed lay people continually try to decimate California's bilingual program, but when a member of the California Board of Education, Angie Papadakis, shows ignorance in her article (Editorial Pages, Aug. 25), "Ramon Is Our Future, But What Is His?" I become very frustrated. As a principal of an elementary school with a large Spanish-speaking population, I have seen, and can document, the improvement children make when they get in a good bilingual program.

As Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pursues control of the Los Angeles school system, his advisors are considering wide-ranging changes that could gut the central bureaucracy, sell the district's headquarters, keep students in class until 5 p.m. and extend the academic year to 10 1/2 months. Those details and dozens of others are contained in a draft district takeover proposal, obtained by The Times, that Villaraigosa's office has circulated to interested parties outside City Hall.
