School Supt. J. Gordon Christensen says that, because of the state's budget crisis, he is braced to lose 10% of his faculty. Her name is Marge Hibbs. Even in Christensen's rural, 230-student San Pasqual Union School District east of Escondido, severe rationing of state education funds is taking its toll in dramatic proportion. Losing a single teacher might not seem as dramatic as, say, eliminating entire departments at San Diego State University, but is equally, if not more, devastating.

Everybody's got it, almost everybody experiences it, but there's not much agreement in San Diego County on how to teach it to our children. Sex. How do public schools teach a subject that is steeped in personal, parental and religious values, but which most people believe, according to public opinion polls, should be taught in the classroom? When it comes to math, there's little discrepancy among school districts about what skills to teach at what levels.

School districts from San Diego to Fresno lent support to Capistrano Unified School District's long but unsuccessful legislative bid for charter status. Senate Bill 1705 died in committee last week. At least four other districts were rooting along with Capistrano Unified for the bill's passage, which would have made it easier for Capistrano to draft and approve a petition to convert to a charter district.

Slightly fewer students dropped out of school in San Diego County last year, continuing a five-year trend, according to a state Department of Education report released Tuesday. The dropout rate for local schools fell to 16.3% in 1990, down from 16.5% the previous year and significantly lower than the state average of 20.2%, the report says.

In recent weeks, a number of school districts in Southern California have backed off from controversial plans to impose special tax assessments to pay for the upkeep of facilities. It's no mystery why. When school board members in Huntington Beach have to be escorted to their cars to avoid an angry crowd, uneasy trustees everywhere are reading the handwriting on the wall. Many of them, unaccustomed to just how hot it can get in the kitchen, would rather switch than fight.

What students wear to school has again become an issue in Ventura, as Balboa Middle School officials grapple with the issue of requiring students to wear uniforms next fall. Officials and parents gathered at the school Thursday night to discuss school uniforms and expanding the dress code policy, which already bans baggy clothing, bare midriffs and skirts and pants that are too short.

Los Angeles fourth-graders scored worse on reading tests than counterparts in New York and Houston, but about the same as youngsters in Chicago, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., federal statistics showed Tuesday. All six of those big-city districts, the only ones included in a new study, fell below national results -- partly because the urban school systems serve so many low-income and immigrant students who are still learning to speak English, some education experts said.

A civil court will determine how much a 17-year-old youth, a 16-year-old girl and their families must pay for the youngsters' part in fires that caused $1.2 million damage at Escondido schools. That was the decision Tuesday of Judge Hideo Chino, a Juvenile Court referee, who rejected a recommendation by the county Probation Department that he assess each youngster $7,500 in damages. Instead, Chino ordered that the matter be decided in a civil-court action in which school and insurance authorities take part.
