THE ELIMINATION of Daniel J. LaVista, fired as chancellor of Baltimore County's community colleges last week, means the end of the blame game being played between pro- and anti-LaVista forces and the start of a search for real solutions to the colleges' reorganization troubles.Dr. LaVista has been controversial and one factor in the colleges' troubles. He enjoyed the perks of office and was not the type to go begging while he asked everyone else to pay. But post-mortems on the chancellor should note that the benefits that brought him scorn were approved by his bosses, the board of trustees.

In spreading his gospel about Baltimore County's community colleges, Chancellor Daniel J. LaVista invokes the Japanese phrase kaizen -- clear the mind.And he uses that philosophy to fend off critics and remain focused on his goal of restructuring Maryland's largest two-year college system, with more than 70,000 students.Recently, the chancellor ran into a storm of protest over a plan that called for senior employees to line up 30 minutes after midnight and stand in line for 6 1/2 hours to compete for 50 slots in a limited buyout.

McAninch, a veteran educator and former college president.In a two-page statement, the trustees said their decision was based on "irreconcilable differences between the board and LaVista on a number of issues, including the scope and direction of the reorganization process and related budgetary issues."

NEXT WEEK the board of trustees of Baltimore County's community colleges will decide whether Chancellor Daniel J. LaVista, hired 1 1/2 years ago to reorganize the three-college hTC system, stays or goes. Regardless of the outcome, the colleges' troubles aren't likely to change. If he remains, the bitter three-way struggle between him, the faculty and the board could seriously threaten the institution. If he departs, only the nature of the colleges' turmoil will be altered, not the underlying cause.

MARYLAND Secretary of Higher Education Patricia S. Florestano says she has never seen anything quite like the Baltimore County community colleges' board of trustees. She doesn't mean it as a compliment.Never, for instance, has she heard of board members marching into a chancellor's office, as a majority bloc of the Baltimore County panel did last Monday, and ordering him to resign or be fired -- without telling their dissenting colleagues and without holding a public vote on the matter, as state Open Meetings laws require in spirit if not in fact.
