Staff Attorney Rabya Khan will moderate a panel at 52nd annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention focusing on educational issues.
On Saturday, September 5, Staff Attorney Rabya Khan will be moderating a panel discussion featuring attorneys, advocates and teachers on “Muslims in Public Schools: Student Rights, Curriculum, and Parental Support” at the annual ISNA convention this weekend at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Studies indicate that at least 50% of Muslim youth experience biased-based school bullying. Classrooms often omit or minimize Islam from curricula and limit exposure to literature that enhances an American Muslim identity. Advocacy and awareness can promote professional development, and parental empowerment. This session will address solutions and frequently asked questions. The speakers include Maha Elgenaidi, Seema Imam, Zahra Billoo, Sadia Warsi. The panel is scheduled for 3:30 pm- 4:30 pm in Room 28, Session 71.
