Reporting from San Diego -- A federal appeals court Tuesday rejected the claim of a San Diego-area mathematics teacher that his 1st Amendment rights were violated when the school's principal ordered him to take down classroom banners that referred to God. A panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the principal and school board had the same authority as any employer to set limits on the speech of employees. Bradley Johnson, a mathematics teacher in the Poway Unified School District, had displayed banners in his classrooms for two decades that he saw as celebrating the religious heritage of America, including "In God We Trust," "God Bless America," and "God Shed His Grace on Thee.

An estimated 36.7% of all high school students who enter the ninth grade in the San Diego Unified School District will drop out before graduation four years later, a new district report released on Tuesday says. The actual percentage, figured from 1985-86 school year attendance data, may be on the high side because of a state Department of Education definition of a dropout that was used for the first time, school officials said in presenting the study to the Board of Education.

"Devolved" is a wan spoof of TV's "Lost" and "Survivor" as seen through the prism of high school dynamics. Writer-director John Cregan covers the basics of character, situation and theme here but never finds his comic footing, resulting in a debut feature that's more tired than inspired. After a whale-watching expedition goes bad, a group of San Diego high school seniors becomes shipwrecked on a desert island off the coast of Mexico, where the popular kids face off against the "unpopulars" in a battle for supremacy.

Contrary to your (Oct. 23) article, the Diocese of San Diego has not been ordered to pay any money to Elizabeth Gorsich. She has a verdict in the case, but not a judgment. University of San Diego High School flatly denies that it ever practiced the discrimination alleged by Ms. Gorsich. The school did not fire Ms. Gorsich because she was a woman, but because, without notice to the school administration, she failed to teach her classes for the last two weeks of the school year in order to vacation in Europe.
