Imane Boudlal was given compromises and different positions with Disneyland where she could wear what she wanted ("OC Now: Muslim worker taken off Disney's schedule," Aug. 25). Instead, she refused and did so very visibly in front of her entourage consisting of videographers, photographers and reporters. Disney has a costume policy. She knew this when she accepted the position. She has one of two purposes here: To make a statement by forcing Disney to submit to her unreasonable demands or to receive a sizable judgment from Disney for her "pain and suffering.

So, Corona del Mar High School has tightened up its dress code this year, going so far as using old Grad Nite T-shirts to cover students who aren't meeting the appropriate decorum. Enforcement is the buzzword under new principal Fal Asrani, who didn't come up with the policy herself. She merely gave it teeth. The horror! The dress code -- for those fortunate enough not to be suffering through the long, crazy four years known as high school -- prohibits big baggy pants, bare midriffs, spaghetti straps, halter tops, plunging necklines and miniskirts.

Deirdre Newman School board trustee Wendy Leece is fed up with what she sees as students' persistent flouting of the dress code and is inviting the community to let the full board know how they feel about it on Monday. Leece says she will welcome community comments during the Newport-Mesa Unified School District board's study session, which also will include discussing refinements to the district's zero-tolerance policy -- which spells out misconduct that is eligible for suspension or expulsion.

In the rush to refute just about everything she says, there is usually a knee-jerk reaction to any public statement by Wendy Leece that results in hyperextension of the joint. Earlier this week, Leece raised the subject of the school district's lax enforcement of the existing dress code policy. Note the key word: existing. This dress code, enacted in 1995, is meant to set guidelines and boundaries for kids. Guidelines and boundaries are not only important for kids, it is something they demand.

Corona del Mar High School officials are enforcing campus clothing regulations for first time in years.Last year's Grad Night T-shirts are back in fashion at Corona del Mar High School. On any given day, there might be half a dozen students walking the commons with the black-and-white souvenirs. It's not nostalgia, however. This fall, Corona del Mar High began enforcing its dress code for the first time in years -- and assigning the leftover Grad Night shirts to students with inappropriate attire.

Joe Robinson I read, with some amusement, Newport-Mesa Unified School District trustee Wendy Leece's comments about enforcing the dress code in school ("Dressing down the dress code," Saturday), since on the same day an article appeared in another newspaper about schools in Iran, where the theocratic rulers have finally allowed girls to attend school without veils covering their faces. The accompanying picture showed these poor young women still heavily clothed from head to toe, with only their faces and hands showing.

ANAHEIM — A Muslim woman who is fighting for the right to wear her religious scarf to her hostess job at Disneyland has been taken off the schedule. Disney officials say they stopped putting Imane Boudlal on the schedule during the ongoing issue. The hotel workers' union claims that Boudlal, a restaurant hostess at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, was suspended without pay. On Tuesday, Boudlal rejected a third, alternative head covering that Disney provided, and she was sent home for the eighth time.

Corona del Mar High School has begun enforcing a dress code. Are dress codes a good idea in a public school? Corona Del Mar has simply begun to better enforce the existing dress code, which is the same at all the Newport Mesa high schools. That's really not asking much. The high school dress code only requires a few basic things like wearing shoes, wearing underwear on the inside, no hats, no gangster gear and a few other reasonable restrictions. Dress codes are a good and necessary requirement in any schools.

THE PROPOSED REA HEALTH CENTER: "A lot more discussion needs to be made. This has been a good example of how important it is to have free flow of information back and forth. As a control systems engineer, if you don't have feedback, you're dead." DRESS CODE: "I like to dig under problems. I think everyone knows how to dress. Yes, something should be spelled out, but you can't lay down rules if people don't buy into it. You need to get all the stakeholders to buy into the idea to dress appropriately.

A female Muslim worker at Disneyland, Imane Boudlal, made headlines by becoming embroiled in a dispute with her employer about whether she could wear her hijab, an Islamic head scarf, to her job as a hostess at the amusement park. Boudlal, who has filed a discrimination complaint against Disneyland, was sent home Tuesday for the eighth time after she rejected a third alternative head covering provided by her employer, according to press reports. Disneyland, which has a strict dress code for its employees, had also reportedly offered Boudlal four other assignments that would have allowed her to wear her hijab.

Last weekend, I drove up to Delano, in the Central Valley, to visit a neighbor in prison. When I arrived, the guard told me I was dressed inappropriately and sent me out to change. If you know me, you will understand my shock. I think of myself as a modest person, and I had read the dress code. I thought I was following all the rules. I put a sweater on over my dress to cover up my inappropriately bare arms, then went back in. "Can you take that sweater off?" the guard asked me. "I can," I said, "but I won't.

Last week I told you about a couple of our local schools that we can be proud of for their Veterans Day programs. Now I want to give a big shout out to another school in our Newport-Mesa Unified School District: TeWinkle Intermediate in Costa Mesa. But first I want to talk about what’s happening in our community. Too often we only talk about the negative and not the positive aspects of our schools; we need to change that conversation around. Whether it is real or just perception, our schools in Costa Mesa are not considered as good as other schools in neighboring districts.

NEWPORT BEACH — Roy Ward can still remember the day at Newport Harbor High School when he heard that Nazi Germany had surrendered. He and his classmates were busy rehearsing a play when a teacher stepped in to deliver the news, and Ward, busy with studies, didn’t think much of it at the time. “They just said, ‘The war’s over in Europe,’” he said at the class of 1947’s 60th reunion Saturday at the Newport Sea Base. “People said, ‘Yay,’ and then we went on practicing.

The whole point of a charter school is to offer something unique, special and different. Sometimes the charter school appeals to kids who are in the mainstream and sometimes they appeal to kids who don't fit in the mainstream or whose home situation is such that they need another style of education. A charter school is not a square peg that is supposed to be trimmed to fit in the round hole that is that standard school district bureaucracy. A charter school is not perfect, but many of them are more perfect than public schools.
