Kentucky parents file suit seeking to resume in-person class

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A group of Kentucky parents have sued several public school districts, seeking to put an end to online learning and return students to classrooms in-person, nearly one year after the coronavirus pandemic forced schools to pivot to virtual or hybrid models. Lawyer Chris Wiest told The Courier-Journal on Tuesday that he filed the statewide class-action lawsuit in Boone Circuit Court. The plaintiffs are parents in Boone County. Wiest says parents from Fayette and Jefferson counties are expected to join. Defendants are set to be the school boards of each district named. The formal complaint wasn’t available Wednesday morning. Wiest said it’s being processed.
