Amaal is a 13-year-old seventh grader at Forrester Middle School. This is her second year at Forrester. She also attended elementary school with many of the children at Forrester. She has lived in this school district all her life. Amaal’s family is from Pakistan. Her parents immigrated to the United States to attend college. Upon completion of their educations, they applied for and were granted work visas, and then later became U.S. citizens. Both of Amaal’s parents are employed outside the home. They have a comfortable lifestyle. At least they did until 9/11/01.
Things changed dramatically after that tragic day. While Amaal never had problems with peer relations growing up, and was, in fact, a fairly popular student, recently she has been the object of ridicule at school. Other students make disparaging remarks about her ethnicity. Some refuse to work with her on group projects, telling teachers that they are afraid to because she “might do something” to them.
Amaal was on the school volleyball team last fall. After the terrorist attacks, the other girls on the team would have nothing to do with her. They ignored her both on and off the court. Opposing fans and parents often directed racial slurs at Amaal. It did not take long for her to quit the team. The other girls actually celebrated her leaving with a slumber party at the home of the team captain.
In the past, Amaal has been a stellar student. Now, she is just getting by with Cs. She seems to have lost the spark that previously endeared her to her teachers and classmates alike. She often sits alone in the cafeteria, or sits with the few other students with Middle Eastern backgrounds. These students, who generally did not seem to have much in common before, now share a sad plight—the rest of the student body ostracizes them.
