ADHD Drugs Don’t Lead To Better Performance In School
I was surprised at the results, but it makes sense. The problem is it increases focus, but it may be on the wrong thing... I understand also, if you ever took medication for ADHD, you can't go into the military. Another issue is it does not build self control. A better solution may be in offering more exercise opportunities, so kids can burn off their excess energy so they can focus. Eliminating Recess and PE may be good theoretically to increase time in class, but effectively I doubt it helps. It just makes kids less focused in class.
