Re "Stop Poisoning Schools," May 10. Your editorial and the news story that preceded it warning of the effect of farming operations on teachers and students is particularly timely as the Oxnard Elementary School District is on the verge of approving construction of a new campus in the middle of farmland. District staff are pressing to put a new school in southeast Oxnard, which would be within 1,000 feet of farmland despite the fact that your article provided numerous examples of health-related problems when schools are put within 7,920 feet (1 1/2 miles)

The Oxnard Elementary School District is considering enrolling in a new program that would free the district from nearly every rule in the state education code but would require it to set higher academic standards, toughen campus security and increase parental participation. State Supt. of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin proposed the "Challenge School District" program early last month in an effort to raise the state's academic standards.
