Specifically, it will be used to purchase microcomputer-based laboratories, calculator-based laboratories and software that simulates experiments.

Re "Private Schools Lose Ground in Hiring, Keeping Teachers," Aug. 8: I would like to share why I left the private school arena to teach in the public schools. It had nothing to do with money, although now that you mention it, I am going to earn $15,000 more this coming year. It had everything to do with private-school parents and their conviction of entitlement. When I joined the teaching force, I entered with enthusiasm, creativity and a drive to communicate with children. Little did I know that when parents pay $12,000 to $25,000 a year for their elementary student's education, I would be taught many lessons.

The City Council agreed Wednesday to help the Oakwood School secure financing to construct a multipurpose building by lending the city's name to the nonprofit campus to sell bonds. The new school building, expected to cost at least $6 million, will have underground parking, a gymnasium and locker rooms, a dance studio and a music center on a site across the street from the Magnolia Street campus. Construction is expected to begin this summer, and the building would be open in 1999.

In a highly unorthodox move to generate outside funds, Cal State Northridge officials are negotiating with a for-profit, private school that wants to establish its own academic program on the campus, even though a similar program is already offered there. EF International Language Schools, whose parent company is based in Sweden, is seeking to lease half a dormitory and about a half-dozen classrooms beginning this fall for its English as a Second Language courses.

"With your help, we can convince him to put the interests of school kids ahead of the special interests that oppose parents' rights in schooling," Sen. Paul Coverdell of Georgia said Saturday in the GOP's weekly radio address.
