Title & Abstract: Ignored, Punished, and Underserved: Understanding and Addressing Disparities in Education Experiences and Outcomes for Black Children with Disabilities is a join report by Bellwether and Easterseals about some of the barriers impacting success for students of color (especially Black students) with disabilities. The report shares insights from families, qualitative research, quantitative data, and interviews with scholars, advocates, and school leaders to better understand the educational experiences of children of color with disabilities, with a particular focus on Black students.
The piece identifies four areas where educators, schools, and districts treat students of color with disabilities differently than their white and nondisabled peers:
Identification -- Placement -- Discipline -- Family engagement and support
During my discussion, I will explain the findings in the report and share deeper insights about the experiences of the families we spoke with and some of the deeper implications of our findings concerning the circumstances that allow the barriers impacting students with disabilities to persist.
