Default Xenophobic bullying of eastern European kids on the rise

Xenophobic bullying souring lives of eastern European pupils in UK
Study finds children in England and Scotland experiencing rising prejudice since Brexit vote

Eastern European pupils in schools in England and Scotland have experienced increased levels of racism and xenophobia since the Brexit vote, with some accusing their teachers of failing to protect them and even joining in, research claims.

The study, led by the University of Strathclyde, found that 77% of pupils surveyed said they had suffered racism, xenophobia or bullying, though such approaches were often disguised as banter. Of the pupils, 49% said the attacks had become more frequent since the EU referendum in 2016.

Pupils told researchers they were the target of verbal abuse in the street and on public transport. There were also physical attacks, but the children claimed most of the those happened at school. Some accused teachers of ignoring such incidents, and claimed a number even laughed along and joined in.

''though such approaches were often disguised as banter''

so that makes it ok to be racist, xenophobic or a bully
