Parents around the country are reporting that school administrators are coercing them to give their children Ritalin by telling parents that their child may not attend school unless he or she is placed on Ritalin or a similar medication.

The CCLE is neither pro-Ritalin nor anti-Ritalin. Instead, we believe it is wrong to restrict public benefits—especially a child's education—based on the use or nonuse of psychotropic medicines. Please join us in returning the power of choice to the parents.
