Growing in Faith: California Muslim Youth Experiences with Bullying Harassment & Religious Accommodations in Schools

Highlights key findings from the 2012 Muslim Youth at School Survey administered to Muslim American students attending California public schools. The findings indicate that, in general, Muslim students reported a healthy school environment in which they were comfortable participating in discussions about their religious identity, believed that their teachers respected their religion, and felt safe at school. The findings also indicate that there are still significant issues facing American Muslims in school such as teacher discrimination and bullying.
