Growing anti-Muslim sentiment has become a problem in U.S. schools—as many as half of Muslim students have been bullied by their peers, mainly because of their religion.
One hotspot of anti-Muslim sentiment has been St. Cloud, Minn., a small city 90 minutes west of Minneapolis, where a large influx of Somali immigrants has sparked anger and intolerance in the community.
The city's school district, however, is working to create a welcoming and tolerant school climate, offering language and cultural services, as well as extracurricular programs, designed to promote acceptance among students. Education Week's John Tulenko reports from St. Cloud, Minn.
