The article discusses the efforts made by the school board in Los Angeles, California, to bring community and civil-rights groups into schools to help students deal with the issues raised by two court cases related to 1992 riots. A board member, Warten T. Furutani, proposed the initiative because of "enormous concerns" about how the public might react to verdicts in the two cases. The board agreed to have the groups help prepare students before the verdicts with discussions, debate, and information to better understand and deal with all the related issues and responses. The groups are to work in partnerships with the teachers and school administrators. Other organizations that supported the resolution were the Asian Pacific Legal Center and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
