Generation Rx: Reading, Writing, and Ritalin
Call Number: PROF DVD 618.928 G326 (Room 105)
Four million American children begin their school day by taking a little yellow pill, Ritalin, to control hyperactivity. Generation RX takes a long, hard look at this phenomenon. Critics contend that children are being drugged and sedated instead of helped to adapt to the many pressures affecting their lives. Supporters say that the medication frees the kids from the pain and confusion caused by attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, and other behavioral problems.
