ACLU sends letters to Kirkwood, Mehlville school districts

A new wrinkle to the school transfer story today. The ACLU of Eastern Missouri sent a letter to the superintendents of Mehlville and Kirkwood schools asking them to reconsider their decision to place limits on the number of transfers they will accept from Riverview Gardens.

ACLU Executive Director Jeffrey Mittman argues that all students are guaranteed an education.

"There cannot be arbitrary government action that would limit that right", Mittman says,"so for example, you cannot say there is a date cutoff by which you need to make that selection, or a lottery that would limit the right of students to attend the accredited school that their families select."

Mittman says the ACLU is not issuing a mandate to the districts, but says the letter is intended to open a dialogue with school officials.
