The Treatment Philosophy Snowballs.
Hern, Matt
SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v15 n1 p58-63 Win 1998
Students who respond to the ludicrous environments of schooling with behaviors and demeanor that do not fit school criteria frequently are given a medical label and drug treatment. The fact that Ritalin is given to 2.8% of all American children reflects a "treatment philosophy" in which professionals define problems and prescribe treatments for a disempowered service population.
