We want to make sure that all of the educators here are aware of the Sikh faith, and also that all the students here at Whiteland Community High School are in a safe learning environment.”The training was scheduled after a bullying incident between a group of students and another student who is Sikh.A video posted online showed classmates knocking the student’s turban from his head along with physical and verbal attacks.Ultimately, school administrators decided to suspend all students involved.
