An attempt by a group of fundamentalist Christians to have a controversial series of grade school readers banned in Redondo Beach has failed as the city's elementary school trustees voted unanimously this week to retain the texts. The decision capped several months of intense lobbying by opponents of the Impressions series, who said the books promote satanism and include stories that are inappropriate for youngsters.

An innovative program at Redondo Union High School to give all ninth-graders their own personal laptop computer for homework and assignments has been delayed. Freshmen were expecting to receive their 7-pound computers in November, but because of a manufacturing delay the computers will not arrive until February, said Pat Hosken, the school's director of technology. The school last week received 25 laptops from NetSchools Corp., the company that has the contract to provide the computers.

Redondo Beach freshmen can forget about those three-ring binders, messy handwritten reports or that old excuse that the dog ate their homework. That's because in November, all 463 of the ninth-graders at Redondo Union High School will be issued their very own laptop computers they can take home during the school year. The school is believed to be the first public high school in California to issue take-home laptops to an entire grade.
