For the first time in a decade, California standardized test scores in English and math slipped this year, flummoxing educators who blame budget cuts and new national learning standards that have required curriculum changes. Despite the statewide slip in scores, released Thursday, Los Angeles Unified School District largely held its own: Students posted the highest gain in math among 10 large urban school districts and a smaller drop in English than statewide peers. Scores rose particularly in two grades - sixth and ninth - that have adopted new academic learning standards, even as some educators pointed to them for the statewide decline.

Re "Educator in chief," editorial, March 11 If pinpointing accountability is the rationale for mayoral control of the Los Angeles school district, it is a dubious strategy. That's because education will then be only one of a series of issues that voters consider in judging the performance of the mayor. It's hard to understand how this dispersion will be an improvement over the present situation. It's particularly ironic that The Times is championing this approach in light of California's history.

I would like to express my appreciation for the excellent photographic coverage in The Times real estate section on June 23 of our students' Master of Architecture graduating thesis projects. The Westside Associates Ltd. was extremely generous with the loan of space in the Westside Towers for the thesis presentations and reception. With The Times' cooperation and interest, our graduating students had the opportunity to demonstrate to the community their goals and vision as future architects.

In his discussion of the sad fate of People Express, John F. Lawrence suggests that the associated Harvard case study of that airline will have to be revised. But perhaps what needs to be revised instead is the notion that reading such cases is the key to sound management education. Lawrence correctly points out that the People Express story has many elements. These include reaction to government regulatory policy, design of marketing strategy, systems of human resource management and cost control.

It was disturbing, but not surprising, to read about the Los Angeles Leadership Academy, the public-funded charter school that is teaching social justice revolution to middle-school students when most of them read at second-grade level and need remedial training ("Reading, Writing and . . . Revolution," by Richard Lee Colvin, Oct. 5). Indeed, it is troubling enough that the education establishment left generations of students functionally illiterate by replacing fundamental academics with the nonsense of political correctness, censored textbooks, historical reconstruction, social promotion and outcome-based programs.

In launching their new $75-million complex, officials at UCLA's Graduate School of Management say they have set in place the high-tech tools needed to train the 21st-Century manager. Each seat in every classroom of the seven-building complex is wired to connect with a laptop computer. The computers in the John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management are connected to the school's library and the Internet.

As an alumna and librarian I was appalled to learn of UCLA's decision to close the Graduate School of Library and Information Science ("UCLA Plans to Cut, Combine Costly Programs," June 4). For those who think such a move can be justified I suggest the following: Go to a library of your choice and try to find information on any three topics without consulting any of the library's catalogues, indexes, or reference librarians. That simple exercise should make it clear that these tools and the expertise of trained information specialists are the key to the efficient use of the increasing body of information our nation produces and uses.

If "Catching the Next Wave" (Opinion, Aug. 11) is any indication of how the new generation of business leaders is being informed and educated, then the future of the Southern California economy will indeed be bleak. Joel Kotkin's vision of the economic and political scene is filled with imaginary demons and evildoing "progressives" whose gravest sin, it seems, is believing that "wealth creation" and "fairness" can occur together. Hobgoblins appear everywhere, from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and "Establishment" boardrooms to the teeming hordes of neighborhood activists and UCLA academics bent on subverting the new leadership being prepared--we are led to believe--under his guidance at Pepperdine University's School of Business and Management.

Curtis Woodhouse was sure that the worst of Tijuana in the old days was what the rest of Mexico must look like. But he doesn't think so anymore, not since he visited the country with a group of UCLA classmates. "Most of us had really not experienced Mexico. Some people had been to the border. . . . (The trip broke) down a lot of stereotypical barriers," said Woodhouse, who visited Mexico earlier this year. "There is a whole language of architecture there that really has nothing to do with what you see" in Tijuana.
