No sooner had Marshall High School senior Kyu Lee ducked out of an ethics and career course a few minutes early than his classmates began hollering for justice. "They wanted consequences," said Maggie Lapre, who instructs the experimental "Life Skills for the 21st Century" course designed to teach students right from wrong. "So I asked Lee for an apology, an hour of detention and for him to meet with a counselor." At first, Lee protested: "What did I do wrong? I didn't hurt anybody."

An increasing number of California school districts are edging closer to financial insolvency, state officials reported Tuesday. One immediate effect has been teacher layoffs — probably in the thousands, although neither state officials nor the California Teachers Assn. have final numbers.

Los Angeles school officials chose school district administrators to lead nine of the 11 subdistricts created by a sweeping reorganization. The other two appointees worked most recently in the Compton and Santa Rosa school districts. Under the reorganization plan developed by interim Supt. Ramon C. Cortines, which takes effect July 1, the leaders will have substantial control over resources in their districts and the autonomy to make most decisions about budgeting, procurement and personnel.

Calling it mean-spirited and arbitrary, Los Angeles school officials on Monday formally voted to oppose a bill aimed at dismantling the school district, saying it singled out the massive system without regard to student achievement.

The State Board of Education opens two days of hearings this morning on proposed regulations that would govern a breakup of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Critics say the rules are designed to thwart the secession movement. The proposed regulations require that any election on a district breakup proposal be preceded by an analysis of its effect on student demographics and the distribution of district resources.

Dismantling the giant Los Angeles Unified School District could displace thousands of students, force many more into overcrowded classrooms and redistribute wealth mostly away from the better-off campuses, a Times computer analysis of school records shows. Current proposals to form half a dozen or more smaller districts, if successful, would cause severe overcrowding in heavily minority areas from Hollywood to the southeast cities of Bell and Cudahy.

An outspoken trustee for the school district in Acton and Agua Dulce has resigned. Nancy Kelso's resignation was accepted by trustees at their meeting last week. She had submitted a resignation letter Aug. 4, which said only, "I resign effective immediately." Earlier this year, Kelso, who often clashed with other trustees, had threatened to resign April 1 after two fellow board members signed a contract accepting a land donation from a developer without the consent of the full board.
