While students and teachers sweat and try to concentrate, the heat wave melts the wax of an unlit candle in a high school in the San Fernando Valley, the hottest section of the Los Angeles Unified School District. It's been 15 months since voters approved Proposition BB, a $2.4-billion local school bond measure for construction and repair. And air conditioning is what sold the bond proposal to many voters, especially in the Valley. What's going on?
