I read the front page article in the News-Sentinel titled, "Admin Places Teacher Under Arrest" on Dec. 24. In the latter part of the article, I was struck by the comment that Principal Patricia Lingerfelt compared Lurdes Rosales' experience to that of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a bus in the segregated South.

To compare Rosales' experience to the injustice and bigotry that Rosa Parks and Black Americans experienced on a daily basis in the South is not only laughable, but truly an insult to Parks' amazing legacy and the incredible courage shown by her that day.
