If somebody told you that a public agency had spent years constructing one of the most expensive secondary schools in the world without any precise idea of what would be taught there or who the students would be, you'd say, "Don't be ridiculous." Then you'd remember that the Los Angeles Unified School District really does exist.

After reading the announcement of the search committee members for the position of LAUSD superintendent (Jan. 22), I keep asking myself why there are so many individuals who have not seen the inside of a classroom for many, many years? Eli Broad is a great philanthropist, but what does he know about education? I propose the inclusion of exemplary administrators like cluster leader Richard Alonzo, or principal Maxine Matlen of Fair Avenue Elementary School, or veteran teacher Rose White of Leo Politi.

Balloons waved and patriotic songs filled the sun-splashed courtyard Friday as students, teachers, parents and administrators marked the opening of the first Los Angeles Unified School District cluster training center in the San Fernando Valley. The Francis Polytechnic North Hollywood Cluster is the only one of eight Valley clusters to have space for training, which enables teachers and administrators to conduct sessions without disrupting classes.

Many of the 390 elementary and middle school students who attend the Bellagio Road Newcomer Center in Bel-Air fled war-torn countries in Africa, were uprooted from Korea or ventured through Latin America to reach the United States. The culture of Los Angeles was foreign to them when they arrived. Most spoke little English. In other words, they are like most of the other 10,000 immigrant children who enter the L.A.

I am compelled to respond to the misinformation contained in Susan Chin-Ramirez's Oct. 21 letter questioning The Times' endorsement of Measure K. The Local District F office is part of a converted warehouse that is also home to the district's information technology division, testing unit and the 1,600-student East Los Angeles Skills Center. The warehouse was not painted three times, but once, using three colors. We could fund painting for only two sides of the building. The building hasn't been painted in over 15 years.

Los Angeles Unified School District's game of musical chairs began Friday as Supt. Roy Romer announced which of the current 11 subdistrict chiefs would remain as their numbers shrink. Earlier in the week, the Los Angeles school board voted to reduce the number of administrative subdistricts from 11 to eight as a cost-saving measure. The new configuration was suggested by Romer as a compromise with the teachers union, which originally sought to abolish the subdistrict system altogether.

If Beau the horse was a talking mule, he'd tell you that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Beau was one of half a dozen farm animals surrounded Thursday by poking, squealing children at Magnolia Avenue Elementary School in Los Angeles. Most of the animals belonged to young 4-H Club members from the Antelope Valley who were helping stage "Farm Day" so inner-city pupils could see horses, pigs and sheep up close.
