ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Five St. Louis firefighters are suing in an effort to enroll their children tuition-free in school districts outside of St. Louis Public Schools.
The city school district has been unaccredited since 2007. St. Louis firefighters are required by state statute to live in the city.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the lawsuit targets Lindbergh, Kirkwood, Webster Groves and St. Louis school districts, saying they fail to comply with a 1993 law that allows students in unaccredited school districts to transfer without paying tuition.
