This may be the only reason why I favor a limited amount of charter schools in Minnesota. Go ahead and tell me that these kids can get help and come back to a school, and the kids will all be changed. It may happen, but not very often. Acceptance is a tough thing for kids to do. There is nothing wrong with kids as described, and allowing them a school where they can feel comfortable will allow them to pursue their education and focus on learning, instead of who is going to say what next. I wish them well.

As the parent of a troubled kid, I have to say that school is not the appropriate venue to treat these problems. Identify, yes. Treat, no. This is a para-educational problem that needs to be addressed in an environment where functioning students are not disrupted.

Helping schools with troubled kids? Throw them out or deport them whenever possible.

It is not the schools/governments responsibility to treat mental illness! The teachers, counselors , principals can help identify and report potential problems but at the end of the day its the parents responsibility to seek medical help for their child's illness!
