Katrina Miller's comment, November 4, 1:46 AM

Should they actually get to the point of enforcing this, what would the response be from the male heads of the households?

To the editor: Shame on the Los Angeles Unified School District for arguing that a 14-year-old student was mature enough to consent to sex with her teacher.
