WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Four Hispanic families are suing St. Anne's Catholic School over a policy that requires students to speak English at all times while at school.

Their lawsuit calls for an end to the policy, which they say discriminates against them, and asks for an order barring similar policies at other diocese schools.

It seeks the return of one student to the school who was allegedly kicked out for refusing to sign the ``English only'' pledge. The lawsuit also asks for court costs and unspecified damages for discrimination and emotional suffering.
