Report says bullying of American-Islamic kids on rise
ABC San Francisco
A new report is shedding a disturbing new light on school bullying involving Muslim students in California. The Council on American-Islamic Relations says 1 in 5 Muslim students suffer bullying because of their religion.
Fatima Abdo, 15, and her mother won't forget a bullying incident last spring at Fatima's high school in the Eastside Union High School District of San Jose-- but it didn't involve a fellow student. It was one of her teachers.
"Everyone was chatting and then my teacher just turns to me and she's like, 'If you don't stop talking, I'm going to rip that thing off your head.' And then the whole class was so silent and shocked. They all gasped," Fatima recalled.
