Re "Dressing down school dress codes," Opinion, Sept. 5 Law professor Ruthann Robson opines that a dress code focusing on "the number of inches between the hem of a skirt and top of a knee" tends to "divert attention from substantive learning.

On-the-ground school administrators seem better positioned than ivory-tower judges to make sensible decisions about students' attire.

Re "A Call for Grown-Ups," editorial, May 10: The cellphone incident involving a 17-year-old high school student in Columbus, Ga., talking to his mother who is serving in Iraq was handled poorly. I am a veteran and know firsthand what it is like to be stationed halfway around the world. Just a word of encouragement from home is salvation for a weary soul. School administrators in this case do not have a clue about being understanding. They need to be retrained in human relations.

This is regarding "A Bitter Pill" (Dec. 13), about Mexican-trained professionals, specifically medical doctors. It is a shame that these fine people have to beg to work for manual labor positions due to the existing "racial prejudice" mentality of Orange County. That does not speak well of our county, considering its wealth and the population being mostly of Latino descent. It is interesting to note that when Civil Rights Commissioner Phil Montez goes to audit universities on their "affirmative action" programs that the school administrators always claim that there are "not any qualified minorities to fill existing positions."

Their substantial compensation and benefit package has been justified by some who liken public school administrators to corporate managers. Any corporation with a performance record comparable to LAUSD's, however, would have gone bankrupt long ago. Parents of Sheenway students make financial sacrifices to avoid an inferior public school system which they are forced to support through their taxes.
