Schools do not put the kids on medication... your family doctor or a psychiatrist do. I get tired of parents conceding all of their parental authority and decisions to government run institutions. No one is required to put their kids on ADD meds or any other type just because a teacher/counselor recommends this.
One of my kids went to private schools the other transferred to public school in fourth grade. Both received excellent educations... school systems differ from state to state, and county to county. In fact my daughter who is graduating from public high School was lucky enough to take 8 AP classes.
Painting America’s school systems with a broad brush is what the left does... and why they want a National system.
I’m perfectly happy with the way the schools are run in my very blue county, in a very blue state.
Peole like YOU ARE the problem. Have yet ANOTHER SWIG OF THAT Kool-Aide!
Government schools are wrong for a number of reasons. High on the list is that it’s immoral to take money from me at gunpoint to pay for your children’s so-called education.
Then there’s the fact that even the advanced coursework is pretty much garbage. Or the pervasive humanist worldview, the emphasis on obedience to authority, and the unhealthy way schools warehouse hundreds of kids together all day every day. Like prisons.
