Wallace House MATCH PIIINT The agency op- $10,000 bud- most of its funding benefits such as grants, and the Human around the country. Rose, a UCLA professor spent much of his time in the Los Angeles City Schools system, oRen regarded as one of the most "out-of-con- trol" districts in the country. Among other things, Rose notes that almost 100,000 students in that district have been in the United States less than three years and most have only a lim- ited grasp of the English lan- guage. He visited one school where students spoke 52 different lan- guages. However, even in this setting Rose found teacher after teacher succeeding in the class- room, making a profound differ- ence in the lives of children. I had a friend from England ask me years ago, =What are the people like in California? m I asked him about the people who lived in his area. He said that they were rude and self-centered. I told him that these would be the kind of people he would find in California, too. He could change settings, but no matter where he went, there he was--with his same percep- tions. Sometimes we needto change perceptions and it only requires an open mind. There are great events and people to celebrate in our schools. It may be too late to throw a parade for our new kindergart- ners this year, but there are cer- tainly causes for celebration going on every day in many ways, and we are just beginning the school year. I would expect that most of the news in this column will relate to positive stories. Unfortunate- ly, one of the first articles had to deal with a problem the District had in calculating its revenue this year. The Press-Democrat headline read, "School's Blun- der Could Cut Jobs." This is true; and "El Nifio" could have great white sharks swimming up the Russian River. I would have preferred "gooff or =error instead of blunder; this was a case where the District added tax funds a second time to its budget. It is important to note that the District did not misuse a dime or squander a nickel; the Cloverdale adminis- tration has had a long history of being fiscally prudent and re- sponsible. It is not the way I had hoped to open the school year or my own career in Cloverdale. This is, obviously, very frustrating, par- ticularly because it is keeping me from the classrooms (the en- joyable part of this job). I'm still very excited about being here, but I do feel badly for those staff members who might feel like they are under a cloud regarding future job cuts (al- ways a possibility in public schools, as funding does change dramatically year to year.) These people are the life-blood of our schools and while there are assurances that cuts and reductions are down the road and no one knows at this time what the extent might be, no one likes to live with uncertainties.
