CAIR-San Diego is calling on the Cajon Valley School District board to fire Vice-Principal Gregory Calvert of Chase Elementary School. But the school district superintendent is standing by the vice principal.
CAIR claims to have received several complaints from concerned Muslim parents regarding alleged harassment under Calvert’s leadership, specifically cases targeting Syrian Muslim refugees. CAIR also is asking for the update and implementation of a new school bullying policy to protect Muslim students. A study done by CAIR’s California chapter reported that more than half of Muslim students experience some form of bullying based on their religious identity.
