A federal trial started Wednesday for a lawsuit three Hispanic families filed against a Catholic school in Wichita.
The lawsuit challenges a policy that requires students to speak only English while at school.
Three 12-year-old students claim the Catholic Diocese violated the Civil Rights Act and another federal statute by causing a hostile educational environment.
The Diocese says the English-only rule is not discriminatory and did not cause a hostile environment.
The lawsuit calls for an end to the policy and asks for an order barring similar policies at other Catholic schools in the Wichita Diocese.
