Yesterday my son, who is in seventh grade came home from school with a different kind of expression.With very little convincing he told me that a ‘friend’ had called him a terrorist. My initial reaction was to get in the car and go straight to school, which I did, thank God for that! Met with the vice principal and explained the situation.She was outraged and promised to take action, which was : Talking to the child about his wrong decision and probably a few days of no school and sending an email of the incident to the parents.
Now my question is : Is this enough action by the schools?
Me on the other hand will be contacting the supritendant of the district, asking her what are they doing in schools for situations like this. Our job is to inform the district and raise our voice, so that incidents lke this are taken seriously. Secondly, I will be contacting Zahra Biloo, of CAIRE and Maha, of ING, to take action !
