In Wichita, elementary schools were segregated although intermediate level classes, like this one from Central Intermediate School, and high school classes could be mixed.  Unlike African Americans, or Latinos in places like Kansas City, Latinos in Wichita were not restricted to segregated schools. However, these children did face the pressure to fit in and not speak Spanish.
