Sarah Khan's schoolmates have called the 17-year-old Muslim a terrorist since the 9/11 attacks.
Khan, who attends Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High, said all she wants is to focus on her schoolwork and her role on the cross country team -- and for the harassment to stop.
Khan and other students, teachers and equal-rights activists gathered in the Capitol on Monday to support a bill sponsored by state Rep. Ken Gottlieb, a Hollywood Democrat.
His bill would require Florida school districts to enact policies prohibiting harassment and discrimination based on race, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation and other differences. [Link]
