I was just at a meeting of the Ben Franklin Thinking Society in

Based on this meeting, I newly appreciate how schools are transforming into
more full service facilities.

One of those present was a psychiatrist who has managed partial
hospitalization within the schools, including prescribing medication for
parents, not just the students.

The civilian education budget can't keep up with the military education
budget though, which is also tasked with cradle-to-grave services and costs
much more the Haim's little mafia manages to squander.
