I am a dedicated teacher working with a small staff of 20 under a dynamic principal in an excellent Los Angeles United School District LEARN school. LEARN is working in our school only because of the above factors. We are working harder than ever to make our wonderful school even better. Parents and the community are also involved and working together to help our school. I have some thoughts re: "LAUSD Can Better Serve Students by Breaking Up" by Adrienne Mack (July 2). LEARN came about only when the movement to break up LAUSD became a serious possibility.

Christopher Knight's article concerning arts funding in the city of Los Angeles (Calendar, Sept. 4) calls for a response. To put the Los Angeles Arts Endowment in perspective, it is more than just the grants program and includes the Arts Development fee program, which guarantees a percentage of monies from new development for the arts.

We did it. We won the LAUSD Principal (not to be confused with Pillsbury) Bake-Off. On Aug. 1, Norm Isaacs became principal at Millikan Middle School in Sherman Oaks. "How did you do it?" you ask. "What was your winning recipe?" One can't be sure of the exact proportions. We call it Don't Take No for an Answer Rolls. Perhaps it was the full cup of L.A.

Hours after gunfire sent dozens of girls diving for cover at a softball game, the nomadic West Valley Girls Softball League abandoned for good its part-time fields at Canoga Park High School. Police, meanwhile, continued to search for the gunman who opened fire Wednesday evening on the campus handball court from across Hart Street, wounding two young men. They now believe an earlier fight in a nearby alley was unrelated to the attack.

The Science Center elementary school at Exposition Park is an anomaly: a Los Angeles United School District building project that deserves our exuberant, gushing praise. Designed by Santa Monica-based Morphosis, the school's low-slung profile fuses with its environment so seamlessly that it is easily overlooked. But its surreal faceted forms are far from conventional. They represent a world liberated from bureaucratic formulas.

Hubert Eaton, founder of Forest Lawn cemetery and the man Evelyn Waugh parodied in his satirical novel "The Loved One," once decried other cemeteries as unsightly stone yards "full of inartistic symbols and depressing customs." Eaton promised to fill these with "beautiful statuary, cheerful flowers, noble memorial architecture with interiors full of light and color." And he made good on that promise.

Anyone who wants to improve his or her work skills can take advantage of local resources. Southern California's universities, colleges and trade schools offer a broad range of courses in continuing education that take into consideration the individual's needs. Classes are scheduled during days, evenings, weekends and, in some cases, at the work site. Many educational institutions offer counseling for those who are muddled about career goals.
