Children On Drugs
A report released Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services revealed that about a third of kids are now on some type of psychiatric drug. More alarming is the fact that it usually comes with no treatment plan or doctor follow-up. That's scary. The bigger question is why? Could this be related to falling test scores? Is it making our schools unsafe? Do teachers and others have the right to know about kids who have problems and are in the same environment as their kids? Whatever the answers, the percentages should be a real eye-opener.
