Academic doping? Response to MSNBC report

The other day I passed along the MSNBC report re: parents pushing doctors for ADHD-type meds (in the abscence of ADHD) to help high achieving students achieve higher. Odd Time Signatures blog has provided some thought provoking criticism of the MSNBC report.

Hi there, and thanks for the shout-out. Stories like the one on MSNBC make my blood boil. Instead of focusing on the attitudes of the parents who think giving their kids Ritalin for performance rasons is a good thing, they focus on Ritalin and ADHD, which feeds the grist mill of those who think that ADHD should never be medicated, that it's not a legitimate condition, etc.
