To those who know her, it was classic Yvonne Chan. Down the street from the school she headed in Sylmar, police had just completed what was then one of the largest drug busts in history: 21.4 tons of cocaine valued at more than $6 billion. But while authorities seized the contraband, it was Chan who seized the day, organizing a community rally to keep her students off drugs, a rally attended by students, parents, school officials, politicians--and plenty of media types.

Tiny Wedowee, Ala., is an unlikely setting for a battle over the soul of the South. The formerly placid town of 900 sits amid forests and postcard-perfect lakes, a rifle shot away from the Georgia border. It has become home in recent years to retirees from Atlanta and Birmingham, folks tired of city traffic, crime and bustle who just want to get back to basics, back to the way things used to be. But as the last several tension-racked months have shown, the way things used to be is vanishing.

To improve the schools in the Brea Olinda Unified School District, Supt. Edgar Z. Seal has always been willing to take bold steps. Shortly after being hired in 1982, he shook up the administration at Brea Junior High School, replacing the principal and two counselors.

When it came to his children's education, Stephen McArthur planned ahead. He began attending meetings and serving on committees in the Irvine Unified School District 12 years ago--just after the birth of his first child, Michael. "What prompted me to get involved was that I wanted to understand the kind of education my kids would receive," McArthur said. "I wanted to see if I should plan on sending them to a private school." What he saw at Irvine Unified impressed him.

When new Orange Unified School District Supt. Norman C. Guith entered his office for the first time, one of the first things he did was post a green-and-yellow sign behind his desk that bore a two-word slogan: "Children Allowed." The sign, Guith said, was not posted to suggest that children in the Orange Unified district will be allowed to do as they please. It is, rather, a reminder to himself and all who enter his office that children should be allowed to learn.

Security officers hustled away the state-appointed administrator of the Compton school district after an assailant apparently fired shots at him just before Tuesday's school board meeting. State Administrator Stanley G. Oswalt was about to preside over a meeting at which he was expected to approve more than 100 layoffs in the financially strapped school system. The district came under state control July 1 as a condition of an emergency state loan. Shots were fired about 6:15 p.m.
