SAN FRANCISCO - California schools may give students insulin injections and other medications without having to call in licensed nurses, the state's highest court ruled Monday. "California law expressly permits trained, unlicensed school personnel to administer prescription medications such as insulin in accordance with the written statements of a student's treating physician and parents," Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar wrote for the California Supreme Court. The unanimous decision was a defeat for the powerful California Nurses Assn., which had argued that only licensed healthcare workers could administer medicine under a state law that bars the unauthorized practice of nursing.

Eighth-grader Jennie Hoffman was angry. She didn't like the poem she had just read about an overprotective mother who refused to let her son make new friends, and now the controversial CLAS test required Hoffman to answer about a dozen questions about it--including some she thought too personal. "It's true: When you're mad, you write more," Hoffman said during a break in testing at Millikan Middle School in Sherman Oaks. "But I don't think it's right for a test to make you mad.

Diane Thomas, spokeswoman for the Santa Ana Unified School District, said children from the Head Start program had raised $6,000 from candy sales, enough to pay for 490 parents and students.
