Recognizing that school districts need to create thousands of new rooms to reduce the size of primary grade classes to no more than 20 students, state officials Wednesday set aside $95 million to buy and install portable classrooms. The money comes on top of $200 million budgeted for that purpose and will be enough to cover the cost of 2,500 additional classrooms. At many schools, two classes now share a single room, or classes meet in converted teachers lounges, computer labs or libraries.

As the children of the baby-boom generation hit college age, school administrators across California are bracing for what they call Tidal Wave II. At Cal State Northridge, that preparation included last week's Instant Admission Days, when potential students found out in a few hours whether they were accepted to the school. Those who remember the agonizing process of waiting by the mailbox for college responses understand the value of finding out fast whether a student is in or not.

There is not a better investment in our future than investing in our youth. Proposition 203, the school bond measure on the March 26 ballot, provides us an opportunity to do just that. Proposition 203 will fund critical repairs to existing schools, build needed schools and classrooms, improve seismic safety in our children's classrooms, and wire classrooms for computers and other technology to provide our children access to the information age. These improvements will be seen in K-12 schools as well as our community colleges and public universities.

Orange County school officials are fighting a proposal that would require them to buy buses that use alternative fuels, arguing that millions of dollars would be diverted from classrooms to pay for the more expensive vehicles. The regulation proposed by the South Coast Air Quality Management District would require the cleaner-fuel buses in Orange County and three adjoining counties. The districts would be required to buy the buses when their diesel school buses are replaced.

A bill extending the state's bilingual education law until 1992 was approved by the Senate on Friday with significant changes that supporters say will allow local school districts more flexibility in the way they teach non-English-speaking students. The measure was passed 25 to 5 and now goes back to the Assembly for concurrence. The bill then will go to Gov. George Deukmejian, who has not publicly stated a position on the measure.

A coalition of education organizations and state employee groups Tuesday attacked a school voucher initiative proposed for the November ballot as an "evil" measure that would destroy the public schools. The initiative would provide state scholarships or vouchers, initially worth at least $2,500, for every school-age child. The money could be used to pay private or parochial school tuition.
