Education Secretary Richard W. Riley in a speech this week identified a principal reason why the test scores of so many U.S. students have lagged far behind those of students abroad.

Thousand Oaks businessman Marty Bates has an unusual goal for his first term as president of the Ventura County Board of Education: He wants to abolish the 122-year-old institution he governs.

"At one time, they were absolutely necessary, when we had a lot of little school districts," he said.
