Your story on ex-principal John Roseman's legal action against the Fullerton School District (April 3) brought forth an enlightening comment from district Trustee Robert C. Fisler. I refer to the following excerpt, which I hope is not representative of the opinion of the board as a whole: "We can't have irresponsible principals. We can get away irresponsible teachers, but not principals, so we had to demote him." As one who is parent of three grown children educated in the schools of one of Orance County's largest districts and who served in the district 7 years as an elementary school secretary and twice that long in the office of the assistant superintendent, personnel, I am tempted to paraphrase: We can get away with irresponsible school board trustees but not teachers or principals.

At the time, the gesture seemed innocent enough to John Roseman. The then-principal of a Fullerton elementary school never imagined, one October morning in 1983, that his simple act of cleaning up a 5-year-old girl who had soiled her pants would spark a scandal that was to change his life. Hours later, he was confronted by an outraged mother who accused Roseman of sexually molested her daughter.

On Jan. 10, the jury was seated and the trial was about to begin on charges that John M.
