Many kids, and sometimes even adults, experience being bullied at one point in their lives. At Camino Real Middle School, however, bullying is not tolerated.

Such was proven when a seventh-grade student was bullied for wearing a hijab, a traditional head covering garment for Muslim girls.

The student shared, “Well, at lunch, they were all at a table, walked by, he said ‘Hey,’ and I said ‘I don’t like you,’ like in a jokingly way. We both knew it. We both kind of laughed it off." However, what she heard next came as a surprise. She recalled:

“And then when I was walking out, another kid in the back, he shouted, ‘At least I didn’t cause 9/11, you terrorist!'”

Another student was even dared to pull off the girl’s hijab but did not push through with it. The seventh-grade student sought comfort in her teacher, Janice Adams, while crying.

When the news reached special education teacher Brittany Johnson, she knew that the school needed to support the student. She said:

“I suddenly felt that we needed to show everyone, not just her, not her bullies as well, that we are one. You’re not going to do that to one of our students.”

Johnson asked both her leadership class and the student council how they wanted to show support, and the following day, she was shocked to see everyone come together for the bullied girl.

The leadership class, the student council, and the football and volleyball teams escorted the seventh-grade student to her different classes.

Fortunately, there hasn’t been any bullying after the incident.

About 100 students came together for the event and this overwhelmed Adams. She snapped photos of what had happened, posted them online, and it immediately went viral.

The school’s principal, Michelle Harris, also heard of what happened and was proud of how the teachers and students quickly addressed the bullying incident.

There has since been a positive atmosphere on the school grounds, with the event bringing students together to prevent all forms of bullying. Fortunately, there hasn’t been any bullying after the incident.

Bullying often happens amongst middle and high school students. Previously, a southwest Chicago student revealed that she was bruised and beaten by another student during gym class.

Sadly, unlike Camino Real, her school did not take action regarding the incident, which shows that there is much to improve on school policies against bullying.
