Two non-profit organizations have joined six parents in lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District over the education authorities’ use of an “initiative to combat Islamophobia” in its schools. According to Frank Xu, who presides over the San Diego Asian Americans for Equality — a plaintiff in the suit — “Students of all faiths face daily bullying, but instead of protecting all religious students, the school district has selected Muslim students to receive special protection and resources.”
In April, the school district supervisors voted 4-0 in April to implement a program and policies intended to address alleged bullying of Muslim students in schools. The district cooperated with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — an unindicted conspirator in a federal investigation into Muslim terrorism — to conclude upon solutions to the supposed problem.
Among the recommendations: a review of school library books by Muslim authorities; providing Islamic training and materials to teachers; “safe space” for Muslims; marking Muslim holy days on school calendars; teaching about Islam in social studies classes.
