A lawsuit filed against Gloucester County Special Services School District Board of Education addresses faith-based bullying of a Sikh student. The student, a minor, was allegedly suffering from bullying since 2018 due his religion and perceived race. The Sikh Coalition, a community-based organization behind the lawsuit, stated that the student’s cries for help “have been repeatedly brushed aside by educators and administrators.” Subsequently, the bullying got so bad that his parents pulled him out of school.
“No student should experience what my child has gone through—not the bullying by fellow students, and certainly not the indifference, dismissiveness, or criticism of the adults who are meant to protect them,” said the student’s mother. The student is undergoing mental health treatment for the bullying.
