December 18, 1986
Rather than hold its next election in 1987, the ABC Unified School District Board of Education has voted to consolidate with the 1988 statewide general election. By this action, four board members--Richard Arthur, Elizabeth Hutcheson, Homer Lewis and Dianne Xitco, who are up for reelection, could have their time in office extended by 12 months. The 1987 election is scheduled for Nov. 3.

It has been five months since a recall campaign transformed the board of trustees at Orange Unified School District. But in time-honored Orange schools fashion, the opposing parties are bracing for the next chapter.

As the ethnic mix shifts in communities across the nation, a right-wing old guard manages to maintain political power. An important tool is a political anachronism that the landed gentry used to assure that commoners would not control local government, even in a democracy. That anachronism is at-large voting, and it provides to many Americans only an illusion of democracy. Cities and school districts are typically divided into areas or wards.

The challengers and incumbents vying for seats on the school board in the Nov. 2 election agree only that they have widely disparate views about the state of Santa Ana schools. The five challengers for the two seats on the Santa Ana Unified School District Board of Education say students fail to learn English fast enough under the district's bilingual education policy, and that parents' concerns over swelling class sizes and reduced athletic and elective programs are being ignored.

EARLY BALLOTING: Bill Clinton won the presidential race in a mock election at schools in the Lawndale School District on Tuesday, receiving electoral votes from all but one of the district's seven schools. About 5,000 students participated in the election organized by Dixie Sack, eighth-grade teacher at Will Rogers Intermediate School, to introduce children to the electoral process. As much as possible, the mock election was made to resemble the real thing.

The lingering effects of a years-old kickback scandal and divisive labor disputes have made the Orange Unified School District board race the most crowded and controversial of the eight school contests on the Nov. 7 ballot. Plagued by the scandal and a seven-day teachers' strike last spring, the first in the county in three years, the district also has had more recent problems.

Until a few years ago, the Lancaster School District was the school district in the Antelope Valley, local educators say. Teachers there were among the best paid in the region, the district was well-managed and financially healthy and relative calm prevailed. As one board member from another local school system put it, "Lancaster was the Cadillac district of the valley." Somewhere along the way, however, the Cadillac seemingly suffered a breakdown.
