The Minneapolis School Board approved a settlement in a class action lawsuit brought by students who were taught by unlicensed teachers.

MPR reports that students at Broadway High School lost credits toward graduation when the unqualified teachers were discovered three years ago. An investigation found that 13 teachers lacked the proper credentials. The school serves pregnant teens or teen parents.

The Associated Press reports that 657 students will share more than $400,000 to further their education. The students will be eligible for $244 for credits earned in classes with unlicensed teachers. Students can spend the money on education expenses, such as GED courses, vocational training, books, technology and childcare.
