"I find it laughable and unfortunately acceptable that we praise kids as freshmen when they are 16-, 17-year-old kids who have been held back," one reader wrote. Another reader said his son is a "true" freshman, having turned 14 in September, and that "it is high time that CIF imposed a role requiring that no seniors can be over 18 on Sept.

January 23, 1994 | MARY HELEN BERG, Guadalupe Simpson, 49, has instituted sweeping changes at Nimitz Middle School in Huntington Park since she became principal in 1986. The 3,600-student school, 98% Latino and 55% limited-English speaking, has replaced about two-thirds of its teaching staff and expanded its counseling staff, and three years ago was awarded a $280,000 computer grant from IBM. Simpson was interviewed by Mary Helen Berg
When I first came here I just wanted the kids to have an education equal to middle-class or upper-middle-class kids. I just wanted us (teachers) to believe that the kids here could make it and that they wanted to make it, (but that) it was just more difficult. That's really a big vision. Then I re-evaluated, and now I take littler steps. My approach has changed dramatically. I didn't really analyze the way things worked or considered (the school's) very political structure.

Speaking for 20 minutes without taking questions, President Jonathan Veitch pleaded for reconciliation on campus, saying the controversy had taken a toll "on my health and my soul," according to several people who attended the meeting.

The family of a teenage girl sexually abused by a Chino Hills High School science teacher even after officials learned of inappropriate emails between them has been awarded $5.6 million by a jury. The Chino Valley Unified School District was ordered to pay 60% of the verdict handed down Tuesday by a Rancho Cucamonga jury, and the former teacher, John Hirsch, who is now a convicted sex offender, must pay the remainder. "The jury was outraged at the school district's conduct. This could have been easily prevented if the school had chosen to protect the student, instead of protecting the teacher," said attorney David Ring, who represented the girl's family.
