Bullying in German schools in Berlin's heavily migrant populated areas has increased drastically with pupils claiming that they are threatened and beaten simply because they are German, and not Muslim.
Teachers in schools across Berlin are voicing concern over bullying from migrant-background Muslim children towards German children who can find themselves in a minority. According to one 7th grader in Berlin's Schöneberg district, many Muslim migrant-background children bully and beat him simply for being German, Tagesspiegel reports.
In an interview with the newspaper, the unnamed pupil said: "I'm in seventh grade in a high school in Schöneberg. There, I am marginalised because I am German and eat pork. They swear in Turkish and Arabic about me."
