Citing frustration with the Los Angeles Unified School District, San Fernando Valley secessionists agreed Monday to explore whether to support breaking up the school system. Activists listed several grounds for the move, including the current power struggle between school board members and district Supt. Ruben Zacarias, and the controversy over toxic contamination at the Belmont Learning Complex. But they also cited longer-term problems, including low test scores.
