The commands are crisp and are barked out in a knife-sharp voice that is demanding, impatient and not a little menacing. "Hurry up! Get your hands out of your pockets." "Get that thing off your head." "Get those toes touching the heels in front of you." "When you hear the word 'avast,' you will freeze. The only things that should be moving are your heart, your lungs and your eardrums." The order-barker is Philip Clinton of the Orange County Marine Institute.

State Sen. Tom Hayden (D-Santa Monica) charged Monday that for years administrators at San Diego State University have falsified documents to cover up for professors who are not teaching full loads, thus cheating students and taxpayers. "This damn thing seems to have been going on for 20 years," Hayden said. "This is major fraud." Hayden, who is running for the Democratic nomination for governor, demanded that the state's legislative analyst investigate San Diego State and other California State University campuses to determine the extent of the "ghosts in the classroom."

As more minority students enroll in existing schools, and because most new schools are being built in white areas, North County classrooms are growing increasingly segregated, raising fears that "inner-city" schools are developing in the suburbs. In one Escondido school, 92% of the students are white; in another, only 32% are white. Two of Carlsbad's elementary schools have seen the ethnic-minority population grow to more than 55%, but a new school in the district will have less than 10% minority students.

To many educators within the San Diego city schools system, Hugh and Gail Boyle are the "dynamic duo," a husband-and-wife teaching team who during the last 15 years have influenced policies and reflected district trends more than any of their 6,000 colleagues. In June, 1977, as head of the teachers union, Hugh Boyle led the first and only strike by city teachers, earning admiration from some--but recognition from all--for his willingness to challenge a recalcitrant school board.
