GLENDALE ? Trustees at Glendale Community College are considering adopting a program that would allow students to get a high-school diploma rather than a GED or high-school equivalency. If the board of trustees adopts the program at its June 26 meeting, Glendale Community College will become the eighth school in the state to offer the degree. "The GED is recognized by some vocational programs, by some employers and some branches of the armed forces as being equivalent to a diploma, but not by everyone," said Jane DiLuccio, the chair of continuing education, business and life skills at the college, who made a presentation to the board about the program Monday.

For the first time in its history, Cerritos Elementary is eligible to apply for the California Distinguished Schools award, a program that honors schools across the state for closing the achievement gap. For Principal Cynthia McCarty, who is in her fourth year as head of the school, the first-time eligibility validates the hard work of students and teachers. “We're enjoying the ride and watching our kids achieve,” she said. During the past six years, Cerritos Elementary has reported significant gains on the Academic Performance Index, a score assigned to schools that is based on how well students perform on state exams.

Gary Moskowitz GLENDALE -- Barbara Assadi, English division chairwoman for Glendale Community College, isn't worried about the students she's serving this semester. She's more concerned about the 3,500 she isn't. That's about how many people are on a waiting list to get into GCC's Adult Community Training Center. The center operates at a separate location from GCC and focuses primarily on teaching adults English and preparing them to enter the work force.

Gary Moskowitz School wasn't exactly Tom Murray's favorite place to be when he was growing up. He didn't really think it was that important. He wasn't getting good grades and didn't feel like he fit in with other students. In a nutshell, Murray was miserable. But somewhere along the way, Murray, 20, found the motivation he needed and eventually the camaraderie he longed for from his peers and turned things around. He attributes his eventual success to the personal attention and focused, career-driven education he received at Delphi Academy in La Canada Flintridge.

In honor of one of the most famous icons who has ever lived in the city, Glendale High School will change the name of its auditorium to the John Wayne Performing Arts Center, after the legendary actor who is not otherwise recognized in the city where he came of age. Before he took on his stage name, Marion Morrison attended what was then Glendale's only high school, then called Glendale Union High School. The future western film star played on the school's football team, served as class president during his senior year and acted in school productions before graduating in 1925.

Allow me to introduce you to Miguel. He was in my summer school class — U.S. history I — five hours a day for three weeks, and he passed with flying colors. He is different from the advanced-placement students I’m used to teaching in the regular term. Rather than looking through college brochures and thinking about his life after high school, his goal was to pass the course with at least a D and, next year, get his high school diploma. In the short time that I have known Miguel, I see a very bright young man who struggles with the labels that have been applied to him and who labors under the low expectations that were placed on him, perhaps from a very early age. As an educator, I see someone who has learned to put forth minimal effort and who has internalized the assessments of a few dozen teachers over the years who have rated his intelligence as below average.
