Subject: RE: BS: The Drugging of our Children
Ok, you're a modern-day teacher...a new little kid comes into your class...and he's a WriggleJiggler, called....

Clifford Stoll

...do you realise that YOU, the teacher, can learn one helluva lot from this amazing child? Or do you ring up his parents and tell them..."You're child isn't concentrating very well, won't stop talking, using his hands...." etc.etc.etc...?

How much superb intelligence have we *already* killed off, lost forever to Ritalin and other such drugs, purely because there are those who believe that all children should behave in the same way..and if they don't, then they are 'broken' and need 'fixing'?
