Could it really be a problem with the children...or.....
Nah, progressives are never, ever wrong.
Its a problem with the teachers not wanting to deal with run of the mill kids acting up behavior.
So lets drug them during their “Wonder Bread Years” and then when we take them off the drug they can become “Adam Lanzas”.
O.K. I was in born in 1940. I cannot remember ANY of my fellow classmates that I would consider outside the “normal” range. I was aware of a few children with Downs Syndrome. I had a cousin with M.D.. I knew an adult neighbor that suffered from epilepsy. There was an elderly lady that lived a couple of miles away that would wander her neighborhood and talk to herself. By the time I got to high school, there were a couple of not too bright kids that had repeated a couple of classes. If they were ADHD, that would be a couple out of hundreds.
My question is to all the old teachers out there. Where did they hide all these ADHD kids back then?? That was pre airconditioning and in the South, they would never have survived living in the attics and we didn’t have basements.
