I have read all the recent articles on the proposed move of UCLA's Corrine A. Seeds University Elementary School to Santa Monica, including the Chancellor Charles Young's reply (letter, May 22). The chancellor is using fancy words and funny rationale, it seems to me, just to try to get his hands on more land to build more buildings on UCLA's campus, all at taxpayers' expense. And probably at UES' expense, too. What I want to know is, are taxpayers going to have foot a multimillion-dollar bill to build a new school building for UES in the city of Santa Monica, which already has a declining school-age population and empty classrooms?

For much of its 112-year history, the prestigious, sometimes-criticized elementary school on the UCLA campus has been a place where some of the nation's foremost educators tried out their ideas. Many hallmarks of today's education reform movement--including mixed-age classes, team teaching and cooperative, hands-on learning--have long been mainstays at the Seeds University Elementary School.

Parents and other supporters are rallying to keep the Corinne A. Seeds University Elementary School (UES) on the UCLA campus despite a proposal to move the innovative school to Santa Monica. "Most people think the best solution is to stay at UCLA," said Kathy Seal, a UES parent who cited preservation of the school's autonomy as a major reason for staying put. Seal is one of a growing number of concerned parents, staff and others who hope to persuade UCLA to keep the unique elementary school on campus, where it functions as a laboratory school for the Graduate School of Education.

A 4-year-old Brentwood girl whose mother sued a UCLA-run elementary school--alleging it favors the children of rich celebrities in its admissions decisions--was allowed to enroll in the school Monday after a judge ruled in her favor. U.S. District Judge David Kenyon ruled that Keeley Tatsuyo Hunter was unfairly excluded and should be admitted to the first day of classes at the Corrine A. Seeds University Elementary School, pending resolution of the lawsuit.

UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young is a man of his word. He told me and other representatives of the Friends of Fernald, in response to our entreaties to him to reverse his February, 1986, decision to close the Fernald School, that if he did not go forward with his decision to close the Fernald School, he could not at a later time close the Corinne E. Seeds University Elementary School. Chancellor Young is also a good student. He has learned from his Fernald battle. The Friends of Fernald asked him to move the Fernald School to another location, rather than to close it; but he insisted on sticking to his decision to close the Fernald School.

A federal judge has ruled that a UCLA-run elementary school may continue to use ethnicity as an admissions criteria because it is one of the nation's last remaining "laboratory" schools. In an opinion released Wednesday, U.S. District Judge David Kenyon found that the Corrine A. Seeds University Elementary School--known as UES--must assemble a student body that reflects California's racial and economic diversity to do credible research that benefits the state's schoolchildren.
