CCD Letter Opposing the EAGLES Act
The Consortium for Constituents with Disabilities (CCD) Education Task Force writes to express our opposition to the EAGLES Act (S. 391, H.R. 1229) and all federal funding supporting the implementation and use of violence risk assessment and threat assessment programs in public schools. Threat assessment programs, like many forms of “zero tolerance” school discipline, disproportionately harm students with disabilities including Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). These systems can have severe negative consequences for students, including suspension, loss of class time, and early involvement with law enforcement.
