Officials at three school districts that hired a former teacher now accused of sexually assaulting two female students -- one of whom made her accusations public in a YouTube video -- said that each time, she passed all necessary background checks. Riverside County prosecutors filed felony charges Monday against 40-year-old Andrea Michelle Cardosa, who was arrested later in the day. Cardosa -- who resigned from her post as vice principal at Alhambra High School shortly after the YouTube video surfaced --  faces 16 counts related to aggravated sexual assault and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14, officials said.

As the school term began last week, all but an estimated 2,000 of the 30,000 California public schoolteachers previously facing layoffs were back in the classroom. But their relief that most of the pink slips have been rescinded does not fully erase the pain of the budget cycle, teachers say. For example, Jan Forni was among 38 teachers in the Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District, north of San Francisco, who were laid off over the summer.

As children return to classrooms up and down the state, school districts are hastily devising programs to comply with Proposition 227--and are spinning out a variety of efforts to delay, dilute or embrace the law's requirement that students be taught "nearly all in English." No surprise there. The ambiguous language of the initiative was intended to encourage flexibility in developing English immersion programs to replace bilingual education.
