As a concerned citizen in the Antelope Valley and an English teacher for 22 years in the Antelope Valley Union High School District, I am outraged and embarrassed by the school board's cavalier defiance of the Education Code, which requires school districts to give the California Learning Assessment Standards test. Board President Billy Pricer invited representatives of the Eagle Forum and the United States Justice Foundation--both groups from the San Diego area--and listened to their concerns at the April 6 board meeting.

Acting in apparent defiance of the state education code, the Antelope Valley Union High School District has voted not to administer the Department of Education's controversial CLAS exam, becoming the first school district in California to take such a stand. In a 3-2 vote, the district board of trustees opted late Wednesday night against administering the California Learning Assessment System test this year because of the secrecy surrounding it that prevents the test from being publicly reviewed.

Acting in apparent defiance of the state education code, the Antelope Valley Union High School District in Lancaster has voted not to administer the controversial CLAS tests of student performance, becoming the first school district in California to boycott the exams. In a 3-2 vote, the district's board of trustees sided Wednesday night with critics of the California Learning Assessment System, citing security rules that bar the test materials from being publicly reviewed.

Your Dec. 7 article "Conservative Lawyer Takes Aim at Liberals" by Tom Gorman includes errors and several misstatements regarding the foundation and, further, attributes quotes to me which were taken totally and completely out of context. First, the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) does not operate out of my law office. The foundation is in a separate suite of offices next to my law office. With regard to certain comments attributed to me, I point directly to the claimed quote, that "I can't point to a case that says, 'See here?

Undeterred by documentary evidence and repeated judicial rejection, a group of conspiracy theorists who say President Obama was born in Africa have sued the California secretary of state to demand that she verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates before putting them on the November ballot. Minor party politicians and voters aligned with the so-called birthers filed the lawsuit in Sacramento County Superior Court, noting that their action was on the advice of a federal appeals court ruling last year that they bring their suspicions about Obama's eligibility to a court's attention during an election, not after it. The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to "questions concerning the eligibility" of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief.

Superior Court Judge Robert H. O'Brien said Friday that he will rule early next week on the bid by the United States Justice Foundation to require parental permission before schools can give the tests to students.

A group of Villa Park High School seniors who petitioned the school board to allow a formal prayer at their commencement next week, despite objections from other students, have been rebuffed.
