Scarred Students Wrecking Havoc
Students in an Australian primary school made the news earlier this year by making the threats and pressuring peers into reading the Koran.
Documents given to Australian paper reveal that at least three staff members have taken stress leave, received counseling and been paid compensation after bullying from Islamic students.
One woman reportedly claimed it all got too much for her and she eventually had to quit her job.
She said the final straw was when she received death threats to her family from her students, with some saying they would behead her.
Prior to that, she claimed she made a number of complaints in 2014 about some of the behavior in her classroom.
She said she was abused by students when she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.
Many of the students also reportedly spoke of family members fighting in the war in Syria and pupils would walk out mid-way through a lesson to go and pray.
The woman also reported an instance of bullying during which students would say to that the child being targeted had “betrayed his religion” by “not going to Muslim scripture”.
She said in an earlier incident a “group of boys had stood around a girl and called her horrible names like dog”.
A spokeswoman for the Education Department did not deny that teachers at the school had been given compensation.
However, she said the department was not aware of any religious-related violence at the school.
“All NSW schools must immediately report all concerns of anti-social and extremist behavior in NSW schools to a dedicated hotline,” she said to News Corp.
“The Department of Education continues to work closely with law enforcement agencies on such matters.
“To maintain effective operations and protect the privacy of students, the department will not identify schools participating in these programs.”
Recently, the principal of that school Chris Griffiths was fired for refusing to allow the department of education to run a counter-extremism program there to target students at risk of radicalization.
Good Immigration Policy
Stories like this are occurring worldwide in nations accepting refugees, and we must discuss the potential repercussions that could be faced in Canada.
Canada should be open to immigrants, Canada should be open to those who are real refugees and who have a chance of making it in Canada, but it should not happen at the cost of our safety or by reducing the security mechanisms in place.
