Looks Like TeenScreen's Out In Kenosha

In Kenosha, Wisconsin, the school board took a look at Teenscreen and isn't buying it. Citing the fact that it is funded by big pharmaceutical companies that benefit from the sharp increase of kids on psychiatric drugs. Another factor is the ridiculous idea that answering a few questions can tell you a kid is "suicidal". Especially since it identifies a large percentage of the people who answer the quiz as suicidal -- a much larger percentage than actually commit suicide or even try.

Read this story. It's "fair and balanced", quotes people who are in favor of the program, but points up the objections and concludes it's never going to happen.
