In the early 1980s, a group of Southern governors sought to reshape their region by dramatically changing their public schools. They stumped their states to win broad support for smaller classes, better-paid teachers, higher graduation standards and--most important of all--the extra tax money to pay for these improvements. This group included Bill Winter of Mississippi, Jim Hunt of North Carolina, Bob Graham of Florida, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Richard W.

Its unemployment rate at 6.5% is lower than the national average. And South Carolina doesn't much fear currency fluctuations.

A sneak preview of the 1986-87 Public Broadcasting Service television season suggests few surprises for viewers of the non-commercial TV network.

A favorite money-raiser of churches and school clubs, the raffle goes big time next month when the California Lottery launches a game with million-dollar prizes. Modeled after a raffle held by the Pennsylvania Lottery in 2005 and copied by 10 other states since, the California Lottery raffle is expected to generate $7 million to $8 million for public schools in a 40-day spurt of ticket-buying. Tickets go on sale Feb. 5 and will be available until 6 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day, March 17.
