TeenScreen Bites the Dust - Four More Schools! Nevada, Indiana, West Virginia

The "bites the dust" page is growing with schools and entire school districts: 
Latest Schools that have sent TeenScreen packing:
Penn High school 
Mishawaka Indiana, This is the school district that was sued in federal court by Teresa and Michael Rhoades because their child was screened and diagnosed with two mental disorders without parental consent.  "We discontinued TeenScreen at Penn High school because we had a very low response rate from parents when we requested written permission to administer the screening to students."   (PAT = Parents Against TeenScreen)  
Lawrenceburg High School 
"The school corporation is experiencing severe budget problems at this time. As a result, our guidance department has lost staff resulting in not offering the Teen Screen program this year."  
Clark County School District, Las Vegas, NV
"Green Valley High School no longer participates in the TeenScreen Program, nor does the school plan to do so in the future."
East Fairmont Jr. High
"Computer issues were a problem."

You are to be applauded for exposing these scurrilous practices. Our children are being turned into drug addicts with all the attendant problems before they have even graduated. There is genuine evil in this world and it is good to know it.
