PTA leaders at Bell Gardens High School said Thursday that they will refuse to award their 25 scholarships inside the luxurious banquet room of a local casino, not because they think that the gambling house is an inappropriate location, but because school officials are charging honorees $5 to attend. Instead, the group said it will hold its own senior awards ceremony--handing out nearly $6,000 in book scholarships--inside the more austere confines of the high school library.

OPINION
January 19, 1992 | CECELIA MANSFIELD, CECELIA MANSFIELD is a vice president of the Parent Teachers Students Assn. for the San Fernando Valley area. Commenting on a "parental choice" ballot initiative that would give parents a $2,600 voucher per year for tuition costs of each child enrolled in public, private or parochial school, she told The Times:
The establishment of a voucher system in California would devastate public education at a time the system needs reinvigoration. The state's parent-teacher associations are concerned that under a voucher system, public money would be funneled to parochial and private schools at a time the public schools could least afford such a drain. A voucher system is also unfair to poor people. A voucher wouldn't cover the full cost of tuition and the poor can't afford to pay the uncovered portion.
