Saving 'Einsteins'

As a retired special education teacher, I appreciate Jenny Rempel's commentary, "Don't crush budding Einsteins" [Back Talk Nov. 12]. I agree with her that we may be crushing future Einsteins. I have seen from personal experience how helpful Ritalin can be in the classroom. I have also advised a friend to question the suggestion that her kindergarten child may need Ritalin.

I am hoping that someday our area may be strengthened by informed and caring people such as Jenny Rempel.
