Could this be the Most Needed 21st Century Job: Advocates for Parents in Parent/School Meetings? Would This Child Still Be Alive?
The most needed 21st Century Job might be for parent advocates to appear with parents in school meetings for IEPs (if they will even exist in the 21st century) and discussions about the necessity for behavioral medication for their children. Read the story below about a Florida father’s journey to educate other parents on the school’s insistence that he medicate his young son for behavioral issues, even as his son was making good progress in his school without medication. Read how he was outnumbered at this meeting (not unusual) by school officials and a representative from the Division of Family Services to discuss their mandate that the child be medicated to continue in the school.
From Grumpy Opinions and Tyler’s Story, A Dad Talks About The School Mandated Drugs That Killed His Son:
Grumpy Note: In the fall of 2010, I was part of a small group of conservative bloggers who used to meet about once a month. There were about a dozen of us, we’d met blogging and commenting on the local very liberal newspaper. Two of us, Jim Manley and myself had just set up our own websites a few months before. “Madpole”, was part of the group and one of Grumpy’s first contributors..
Two days after Christmas I got word that Madpole’s eight year old grandson Tyler had passed away around midnight Christmas Night. The first obituary I ever published on Grumpy was for an eight year old boy, the grandson of a friend.
The cause of death was a bad reaction to a routinely prescribed ADHD medication that school officials had insisted the boy take. They’d strongly suggested Tyler’s father would face legal consequences and lose custody of his son if he didn’t medicate Tyler.
According to a report by Healthline: ADHD by the Numbers: Facts, Statistics, and You, 6.4 Million American Children are now taking these drugs, a number that’s increased 42% in just the last eight years. Unbelievably according to Natural News: Every mass shooting over last 20 years has one thing in common… and it’s not guns It’s anti depressants.
Tyler’s father Anthony Kowalczyk has spent the last four years researching the drugs, their effects and speaking out against the forced drugging of children by bureaucrats. This morning he told me he’d just published the video you’re about to watch: Tyler’s Story: Tragic Consequences of State-Coerced Drugging of Children.
Please share it with as many people as possible. You may help save a child’s life.

Anthony Kowalczyk tells the story of how Florida public school officials and the Florida Department of Children and Families coerced him to place his son Tyler back on dangerous stimulant medication, despite the multiple side effects Tyler had already suffered. Shortly thereafter, Tyler died with an enlarged heart, a symptom of stimulant use.

With children being assessed to reaching ‘common’ behavioral goals, will we see more districts mandating parents medicate their children to conform to a ‘common’ data set? Who determines what ‘common’ behavior looks like for all children? Is this behavior designed to mold children into data sets determined to be most beneficial to the workforce industry and educational administrators? One commenter responded to the article:
I was a school secretary. This crap of drugging kids is to “benefit” the teachers, not the child. The name of the game is 100% compliant students since they can’t wack their hands with a ruler any more. I spent a good part of my time in the office passing out IMO unnecessary drugs.
The need in the 21st Century will be great for more parent advocates to advocate for parents/students at parent/school meetings when they are told they must do certain actions for their children to be allowed to stay in school. Parents need advocates who know the law and parental rights. Do non-medical professionals have the authority to mandate medical treatment for children as a requirement for public school enrollment?
