It's a cop-out started in early schools to punish anyone who is smarter than average. Even in the 70s, my brother was "diagnosed' and they wanted to medicate him. I was just reflecting on that today. If I were to put my son in a public school, one week in they'd be pushing meds on him. He has no problem focusing if the material is challenging. I'm the same way. The way I see it, it's just a way to streamline the schooling process. Sedate them til they're dumbed down to average.
