Los Angeles schools Supt. Roy Romer said he has frozen administrative hiring and is cutting back dozens of programs to produce the $100 million needed to pay for teacher salary increases of more than 15%. The budget tightening will become even more severe next year when he will have to find another $153 million to fund the new contract he negotiated with United Teachers-Los Angeles last month. Union members voted overwhelmingly to ratify the tentative contract last week.

Testing with teeth is the wave of the future for students in U.S. schools. Local districts in a dozen states now require students to pass standardized tests to be promoted from at least certain key grades--ending the long-standing practice of moving kids along each year even if they haven't mastered the course work. Also, 24 states now require high school seniors to pass an exit exam to receive their diplomas. Mostly this has been a positive trend.

The Manhattan Beach Teachers Assn. ratified a two-year salary agreement Friday that gives teachers a raise of 8.9% across the board, beginning Oct. 12. Senior teaching staff members will receive an additional 1.1% increase. All teachers could receive another possible half of a percentage point increase if the Manhattan Beach Unified School District decides to extend its 2001-2002 school year from 183 to 184 days. The contract raises teachers' base pay from $35,000 a year to roughly $37,800.

Six out of 10 California community college districts examined in a state audit were not spending enough on salaries for classroom instructors, in violation of state law, according to state Auditor Elaine M. Howle. The law requires that at least half the educational expenses in community colleges go to salaries for classroom teachers and aides to ensure that administrative costs don't soar out of control.

After two years of acrimonious contract negotiations, Orange Unified School District's teachers overwhelmingly ratified the latest offer Monday but at the same time voiced a lack of faith in the school board. Ending what have been widely regarded as the most contentious teacher contract negotiations in the state, 76% of teachers voted to accept a package that gives raises ranging from 1% for new faculty members to 21% for the most experienced ones.
