High school and university see success together Massachusetts program makes the grade with most of the participants By KATE ZERNIKE The Boston Globe Clinton camp says debates ironed out By The Associated Press BOSTON — The Republican and Democratic presidential campaigns ironed out the final details Saturday night for debates between President Clinton and Bob Dole, the Clinton campaign said. The campaigns reached a handshake agreement last week to debate Oct. 6 and Oct. 16, but the Dole camp raised objections about the starting time, stage layout and audience composition for the second debate. Clinton spokesman Joe Lockhart said a final agreement was signed Saturday evening by Dole campaign manager Scott Reed. Mickey Kantor, head of the Clinton negotiating team, planned to sign it late Saturday night, Lockhart said. V TECHNOLOGY Lockhart said the final agreement did not vary in substance from the handshake accord. In Florida, Dole campaign spokesman Nelson Warfield had said earlier in the day that all the details for a final agreement had been worked out but did not elaborate on what they were. The Dole campaign had asked to move the Oct. 16 starting time from 8 p.m. to 7:15 to avoid a conflict with the major league baseball playoffs. The starting time will remain 8 p.m.. Warfield indicated there was a possibility for a last-minute and informal agreement between the two camps to shift the starting time if a baseball conflict does develop — even though that was not put on paper. The Dole campaign had asked for a lectern for their candidate during the town hall-style debate. CHELSEA, Mass. — At Chelsea High School, where students once scored dismally on statewide science tests, there is now an instructor with a doctorate degree teaching chemistry — a course so popular that the school had to add two new sections this year. Teachers who were once demoralized now tour other school districts, touting their newly acquired expertise. Students from bordering communities are trying to sneak into schools in this beleaguered city. And today, even the staunchest critics of the partnership forged seven years ago between Boston University and the Chelsea school system admit that it has transformed the city's schools. "I can't believe I'm saying this, but I really think these people are here to educate our children, and I like what's being done," said Andrea Watson, a parent who consistently criticized BU for the first five years of the partnership. "We were sending our children to schools with no goals, no standards, no supplies. Now we have a group of people who've said, 'This is deplorable,' and they've turned it around." The success of the partnership now has city officials considering extending the 10-year contract into the next century. With the city just a year out of receivership, they say it would be folly to try to resume control of the schools, and risk slipping back from the successes: higher Scholastic Assessment Test and elementary reading scores, and lower dropout rates, to name a few. Not everyone is convinced. Some parents say BU still doesn't listen to their concerns. And even parents who like what the partnership has done say they now want the schools back. "There's no way we could have The Clinton campaign insisted Dole abide by the original agreement, which called for a three-sided podium upon which the candidates could set their drinks or notes. Under the original agreement, either campaign could veto the design. The Dole campaign submitted a design for the podium, and the Clinton campaign approved it, Lockhart said. The final sticking point was the Dole campaign's request to have a marketing firm select an audience in which one third of the people were liberals, one third conservatives and one third independents. The original pact called for a marketing firm to choose the audience, with few restrictions on the composition. Lockhart said the Dole camp dropped its objection to the original idea. Chinese upset over phrases popping up in Windows By The Associated Press : SEATTLE — Microsoft, which spent nine months adapting its Windows 95 program for use in China, is now scrambling to remove some "inappropriate" phrases that pop up in it describing the country's leaders as "Communist bandits." The phrases were in editing software licensed by Microsoft from Taiwanese companies for its personal computer operating system. The Los Angeles Times reported the phrases included descriptions of China's leaders as "Communist bandits," and urged Taiwan's government to "take back the mainland." Bryan Nelson, Microsoft's managing director for China, said Saturday the phrases were removed from unsold software. The company is also sending new software to registered users and posting an update of Simplified Chinese Windows 95 on the Internet so cus- tomers can remove the phrases. Microsoft began selling Windows 95 in China in March, but Nelson said he learned of the problem only a week ago. He noted the Chinese government, which worked with Microsoft to develop the software, made no formal protest and there were only "isolated" incidents of police trying to stop sales. The "culturally inappropriate" phrases, appeared in utility programs called "input method editors" used to create characters in gotten here without BU," said Letty Ortiz, a parent of a high school senior and a kindergartner. "But having oversight is a stigma. We want to move forward without a shadow behind us." But supporters say BU has provided benefits the city never could have produced on its own. Primarily, BU brought cash and connections that Chelsea, mired in the corruption that led to bankruptcy and receivership, could never have scored on its own. Chelsea officials say BU raised $12 • million from private foundations and donors for the city's schools, and have provided about $9 million in in-kind services. BU provides health care in the schools through its dental school and links with Massachusetts General Hospital. Each year, it has provided full scholarships to BU for three Chelsea high school graduates. Links to the university also brought teachers who never would have thought to come to the school system, such as Hannah Sevian, who has a doctorate and teaches the chemistry courses, including an advanced placement course. There are also, for the first time in years, advanced placement courses in U.S. history, calculus and English. And despite rumors that raced through the teachers' rooms at the start of the partnership, longtime Chelsea teachers say their careers have been rejuvenated by the extensive teacher training provided by BU's School of Education. "Everyone used to look at professional development as an excuse to get out of the classroom," said Marlene Goodman, a former teacher who is now director of bilingual education. "The opportunities they gave us, the people they brought in here, have been incredible. It was as if we'd been deprived before. I don't think we would have had the money or the connections to do this. And I don't think We'd be making these advances without it." ON THE RECORD Traditional Chinese. Although the Windows 95 version in question is written in Simplified Chinese, the language used on the mainland, it contains input method editors to create Traditional Chinese, the language used most in Hong Kong and Taiwan. In some input method editors, the program tries to anticipate and complete the phrase the user is trying to create. That's how the rogue phrases popped up.
