The article reports on the U.S. Department of Education's January 2016 call for schools to take extra steps to ensure that Muslim, immigrant and refugee students feel safe and free from discrimination. The agency stresses the schools' obligation to respond to student harassment and bullying. The encouragement came after a poll from research firm Gallup Inc. found that terrorism concern reached its highest level in 10 years after the mass shootings in Paris, France and San Bernadino, California.
