Some California schools get a "F" for teaching tolerance, an Islamic civil liberties group is saying. The Greater Los Angeles office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) says it's hearing from students and their parents saying that children are being verbally harassed and tagged with labels like “terrorist” or “jihadi,” just for being Muslim. Girls have reported being physically assaulted for wearing hijab, the traditional headscarf worn by Muslim women.
