  1. This bill is indeed the first step for immigrants to reach equality. I hope this will be approved soon.

    The article presented here has emerged some negative affect of past childhood experiences when residing in Lee’s Summit MO as a child. I remember the discriminatory remarks and mistreatment from teachers while attending Chapel Lakes Elementary, and a Blue Springs Junior High School. I remember being treated as if I was an undocumented student with minimal rights, but I wasn’t in fact, both my parents served in the United States Marine Corps and yes, I am half Mexican American. I was ridiculed by my peers as they made derogatory statements about me being illegal and from Mexico. I remember teachers placing me in the back of a classroom as if I was invisible. I remember how embarrassing it was to be in the fourth grade for 2.5 years without being diagnosed with a learning disability or speech impairment. These events have stuck with me all the way into adulthood and at times have been quite debilitating. I feel this bill (if passed) only gives the school district authority to treat all Latinos as if they are inferior and unworthy of quality education.

    M3lia, I’m so sorry to hear about your experiences during your elementary school years and the way you were treated as an half Mexican American pupil. But,thanks for being brave enough to share this personal story as it lends credence to the implications, of the proposed bill, that I had originally highlighted in my article.

    Best of luck with your future endeavors!
