As we assess student safety, what are we doing to the students assessed?

Important one from WBUR this morning:
A new study from the International Journal on School Climate and Violence Prevention looks at how one of the protocols, which is known as a student threat assessment, affects the students who are being assessed.
"Even when it’s shown that their threat was transient — [The assessment] can really torpedo a student’s education," said lead study author Nancy Rappaport, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
