      (Thousands of teachers in training in California will keep their "highly
      qualified" instructor labels and can be regularly assigned to low-income and
      minority areas, following Congress' last-minute approval of legislation that
      was supported by a Bay Area lawmaker and the
      Obama<http://www.sfgate.com/barack-obama/>administration.

      Passed in the final days of Congress' lame-duck session, the legislation
      nullifies a recent ruling by an appeals court in San Francisco that said
      federal law reserved the status of highly qualified teacher for those who
      hold state credentials

      The ruling, which had not yet taken effect, would have required schools to
      notify parents whenever interns were teaching their children, and would have
      ended the practice of filling a district's most-demanding jobs with its
      least-experienced instructors.

      Opponents - poor families in Richmond, Hayward and Los Angeles - who brought
      the case to the San Francisco court, and advocacy organizations that
      supported them - are indignant about what lawmakers did and how they did it.
