TELLURIDE, Colo. - Wearing high-top tennis shoes and headphones, 11-year-old Wadjda doesn't look like much of a revolutionary. But in filmmaker Haifaa Mansour's new Saudi Arabian movie, the young girl is just that - as is Mansour herself. Having its North American premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, "Wadjda" has become one of the event's most talked-about movies, as much as for what's on screen as for how the story was brought to the screen. The first Saudi feature directed by a woman, "Wadjda" was made entirely inside the repressive country.

Denise McPeak is 26, a senior at UCLA with plans for law school, thin, beautiful, with long blond hair, a purple T-shirt with rolled up sleeves, tight acid-washed jeans, torn on one knee, no socks and an ankle bracelet. She is very hip. "My mom used to embarrass me a lot when she was drunk," McPeak is saying. "I know what you're talking about. She would call me a slut and a whore in front of my friends. One time she chased me down the street yelling at me that I was a slut."

A vote on whether to remove Vaughn Street School from Los Angeles school district control has been delayed a week in a dispute over last-minute details, a development that has angered teachers and administrators on campus. The school board was to vote today on a proposal to turn Vaughn Street into a charter school, which would give teachers and campus administrators virtual autonomy over curriculum, staffing and finances.

Kent Taylor, the administrator in charge of the financially troubled Inglewood school district, resigned Friday after the state Department of Education learned of tentative agreements he made with the teachers union without the authority to do so. Taylor's resignation comes two months after he was appointed by state Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson to lead the school system - which was taken over by the state in September when Gov. Jerry Brown approved legislation granting $55 million in emergency loans to help the 14,000-student district.

I was struck by the coincidence of your May 17 editorial urging a no vote on Prop. 223 and the appearance on the opposite page of Alexander Cockburn's Column Left, in which he lays bare the statistics detailing "bureaucratic bloat" in California higher education. He singles out for particular criticism the Kern Community College District. I retired from that district several years ago, after 35 years teaching history, French and Spanish, and I will attest to the accuracy of Cockburn's remarks.
