A petition by a group of Sierra Madre parents who want to leave the Pasadena school system in order to join the more affluent Arcadia district should be denied, a State Board of Education subcommittee recommended Thursday. But the subcommittee, whose recommendation goes before the State Board of Education today, questioned Pasadena administrators about the district's dropout rate and academic performance.

The last, slim hopes held by a group of Sierra Madre parents fizzled Friday when the State Board of Education voted unanimously to deny their petition to leave the Pasadena school district and join the Arcadia district. "All of us are pretty darn tired. It's been a lot of hard work," said Suzanne Levoe, who headed the effort, claiming that children's education was suffering due to declining test scores, apathetic teachers and violence in the Pasadena Unified School District.
