Inside the library at Lemay Street Elementary School in Van Nuys, rows and rows of wooden bookshelves stand empty. The library, built to hold 5,000 books, is dreadfully short with its total of about 1,200. And many of the books that are available are old, some dating to the 1960s. For many teachers, parents and students, that just won't do, regardless of the Los Angeles Unified School District's tight finances.

Students from Western Avenue Elementary's special education classes sat in the shade and counted rings on "tree cookies" taken from redwoods on a recent field trip. "This is where learning comes alive and is more meaningful," said teacher Mysie Dela Pena about the Christensen Math Science and Technology Center in San Pedro. "We talk about a lot of these elements in the classroom, but this is where they get the experience firsthand. " The interactive life science classroom is a beleaguered survivor of the Los Angeles Unified School District's budget cuts.

The Los Angeles Unified School District budget obviously needs to be looked at from a fresh perspective. Why not form a committee of "real people" (perhaps Assembly Speaker Willie Brown would select them)--a few teachers, a few maintenance people, a few office personnel, and maybe even a few parents, to go over the budget line by line and see if they can't find some fat to trim.

To paraphrase Lisa Sciortino of Henderson, Nev.: "Infuriated is the only word to describe the way I felt" after reading her letter to the editor Oct. 20. As president of the Chatsworth High School Parent Teachers Student Assn., I can say that school administrators were able to control their students. They did not stand back and watch the situation explode. They are not to be blamed if there is not enough school security on campus. They have been asking for more security personnel for a long time.

Blame for the Los Angeles Unified School District budget shortfall must start in Sacramento. Gov. Pete Wilson and the Legislature have consistently underfunded public education. Additionally, LAUSD budget priorities are skewed. Budgeting should have the classroom as its core instead of the administrative bureaucracy. Outside auditors reported that the latest $130-million mistake was caused by LAUSD financial staff miscalculations, miscommunications and faulty spending projections.

Re "One step forward. . . ," editorial, Aug. 30 The editorial implies that the "new school board" voted unanimously in favor of health benefits for 2,000 part-time cafeteria workers. In fact, I joined my colleague Marlene Canter in opposing the measure. At this late date, approving $35 million in new benefits will wreak havoc on the Los Angeles Unified School District's budget for 2007-08.
