Muslim students in public schools or non-Muslim private schools across California have been bullied at a rate more than twice the national average, according to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) civil rights organisation.
At least 55 percent of the 621 Muslim students interviewed had endured at least one form of religion-based bullying in 2014, according to CAIR's new report, titled "Mislabeled: The impact of school bullying and discrimination on California Muslim students".
