Parents are raising concerns after their children were cut from a Pop Warner team.
Parents are raising concerns following children with disabilities being cut from a youth football league in New Haven, Connecticut. FOX 61 reported that Nijija-ife Waters said her son, Amadi Towe, has played football in the Pop Warner New Haven Steelers League for five years.
Now Amadi has been kicked off the team after she submitted his Individualised Education Program (IEP) report card. Waters has tried reaching out to the league but was told the report card indicated a “scholastic issue.”
Another parent, Slyvia Roman, told FOX 61 that she saw a Facebook post from Waters and realised her son, eight-year-old Kevin Blackman, wasn’t alone in being kicked off the team after handing in an IEP report to league officials.
