At most schools, children are discouraged from writing notes to one another. At Maryland Avenue Demonstration School in La Mesa, teachers have set up a postal service to distribute intraschool correspondence between students. "We just make a point of helping children practice the English language, oral and written," said Rose Anne Goodrow, whose third- and fourth-grade students deliver students' and teachers' notes to one another. "We do a great deal of writing."

Nineteen people are being charged with selling drugs after an undercover operation at four high schools in northern San Diego County by youthful sheriff's deputies posing as students, officials said Tuesday. Nine are current or former students and 10 are adults, said Sheriff Bill Gore. Of the 19, 16 were arrested Tuesday morning without incident; three of the adults are at large. "The take-away from today is this: If you want to buy [or sell] illegal drugs, you very well could be talking to a deputy sheriff," Gore said.

But 14- to 16-year-olds at the humble Tijuana school--and some 170 other middle schools across the state of Baja California--are at the forefront of an unusual bid by reformers to combat rampant violence and corruption.

A panoply of drug prevention programs are in place throughout San Diego County schools, and educators believe they are gradually having a cumulative effect in cutting student acceptance of drug and alcohol use, particularly at the elementary level. School administrators welcomed the emphasis that President Bush placed on the anti-drug effort Tuesday night, but stressed that their experiences show success depends on a variety of educational approaches and not a single strategy.

San Diego Unified School District offers breakfast daily at 138 schools to an average of 17,041 students. The reason is simple. "What we know from our research is that you can't teach a hungry child," said Jane Boehrer, food services director. Of those students, 15,515 come from low-income families and thus qualify for a free breakfast. Since not all schools have kitchen facilities, many have breakfast delivered by the district's fleet of 31 food trucks.

An initiative that would enable parents to spend tax dollars on private school tuition qualified for the June, 1994, ballot Thursday, but supporters vowed to continue trying to get it on this November's ballot even if it means going to court for a fourth time.

Education experts and politicians talk endlessly about how to overhaul public schools to bolster resources for teachers and students, and how to lift bureaucratic rules that stymie creative uses of tight budgets. Such ideas are being experimented with at a San Diego middle school that has found ways to dedicate virtually all its resources to classroom instruction.

It is the best of schools, it is the worst of schools. It is a high school that was honored last year for all-around excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. It is a school whose students scored exceptionally well on the 1984 college-preparatory Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)--better, in fact, than every other San Diego County school considered to be its peer. And yet, this same school is woefully lacking in another crucial area.
