The 17-year-old boy who came into Cathy Owens' nursing office at Murrieta Valley High School in Riverside County was gasping for breath. He had no history of health problems. After quickly examining him, Owens' 35 years of experience kicked in. "He was not able to breathe, and there was no heart rate going," she recalls. "All I could think of was he was suffering from anaphylaxis. " Often the result of a severe food allergy, anaphylaxis can be lethal if not treated within minutes.

The end of walkouts in the suburban Philadelphia school district of Spring Ford, and in Lowell, Mass., and Blue Ridge, Ill., reduces the number of students out of school to fewer than 100,000 for the first time this academic year.

There ought to be a law against rotten schools. Wait! There is a law against rotten schools, if they receive federal money to educate poor children. It's part of the education bill that President Bush signed in January. Starting in September, students across the United States no longer have to stay in schools that keep failing. They can demand a transfer to a better public school. And their district has to pay for the ride.
