My niece is a teacher in an Israeli primary school. Her classes are large: 40 kids in a room. In each class there are kids on Ritalin. The kids need to go to the school nurse to check if they took their Ritalin dose of the morning before entering class. These kids need extra attention, an impossible task with such large groups. So easy to give pills.Both parents work, less attention at home too, so these kids are lost and doomed to enter criminal gangs when they turn 16/17. It has happened in Holland too, same story, same results. Only the class groups were smaller, but the ADHD kids got extra attention from remedial teachers, and extra supervision at home, to prevent them from entering the criminal network in their cities. A study showed that 80% of ADHD boys ended up doing criminal activities.
