A PARENT'S GUIDE TO WHAT'S HAPPENING IN EDUCATION

Once upon a time all school classrooms looked alike. Students sat at desks arranged in straight rows while the teacher stood before a blackboard and talked. Visit a school today, however, and you may scarcely recognize the place. Modern education often goes on in an array of atmospheres ranging from the very formal to the highly informal-- and often under the same roof.

Homeowners and the law: your rights and obligations

Castle or cottage, your home probably is your most precious possession, your haven from the world to do with as you wish. There are plenty of time-honored traditions and laws to back up those rights. But the same rights apply to your neighbors, too-- and that places obligations on you. Your best protection is to learn the basic rules. Generally, your common sense will protect most of your rights. There's no need to gear up for a major battle whenever there is friction; usually a compromise can be worked out.

Storing staples

When you spot a staple item on sale in the grocery store, your first impulse probably is to snap up the bargain. But bear in mind that the item is only a bargain if your family likes it, if you can spare enough space to store it properly, and if you can use it within its storage time limitations. ...

SNAP, CRACKLE, POP

Static is a wintertime peeve that plagues us all. No woman enjoys a clinging knit skirt that insists on curling around her body, sticking to her slip, and crackling every time she stands up or sits down. And what man likes to endure slacks that stick to knee-high stockings?

Rabies: Is it still a threat?

Man has long dreaded rabies, and with good reason. The disease is contracted from the bite of a seemingly insane animal and leads to a grotesquely painful death. While there still is a very real threat of rabies from wild animals, the incidence of the disease in pets can be completely eliminated-- if their owners will just obey rabies vaccination laws and keep those shots up to date.

Pilotless ignition

HOW TO GET THE BEST USED CAR FOR THE MONEY

That used car you may be considering can be a tremendous value-- if you shop wisely. Sure, there's a reason a car is for sale, but that doesn't necessarily mean there's something wrong with it. Perhaps minor problems were just an excuse for the previous owner to get a newer model. You'll probably get a good buy if you ask the car's owner or car lot salesperson objective questions only, then follow up with your own careful inspection and test drive.

PLANNING A BEDROOM ADDITION

Another bedroom, whether it's a private haven for the parents, a small room for one of the kids, or a dorm-type room for a couple of them, can often mean the difference between staying put or moving to a new neighborhood. And if your family doesn't need another bath, a bedroom addition is usually quite simple; even if a bath is a a must, it doesn't pose all that much of a problem, and your investment is readily recoverable should you ever decide to move.

GO-IT-ALONE OR ASK-A-PRO

Since Judith and Bob Bell wanted to avoid major remodeling costs, totally gutting the kitchen was out. Also, the 11½-foot-square kitchen had a lot going for it, so they decided to confine the spruce-up to paint, paper, and better organization. These needs could be met with skills they had, so Judy and Bob decided to do most of the work themselves.

Three others-- Queen Elizabeth, Montezuma, and Spartan-- suggest the varied ties and origins that enrich America itself. To this collection of fine roses, we now add the Better Homes and Gardens Bicentennial rose-- a 1976 beauty.
