If this isn’t a piece of legislation ripe for abuse, I don’t know what is.
Texas State Representative Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) wants to give school officials the ability to diagnose your children as schizoid and force them to be evaluated and “certified” by a psychiatrist that they are mentally healthy.
Never mind that these school officials aren’t trained mental health professionals. Never mind that mental health professionals keep changing and adding to the definition of what is considered a mental disorder, showing that there isn’t even commonality of definition of mental disorders.
Never mind that all that has to happen is that a school official and a psychiatrist have to decide that they disagree with the ideas that you teach your children to have them diagnosed as mentally incompetent. Is it really so hard to see children being segregated into an “alternative school” because their parents are Christians… or support the 2nd Amendment… or think parents should have more input into their kids lives than schools?
It gets worse. Teaparty.org reports:
“Worse still, teachers would be required by law to inform the police, as well as local mental health authorities, providing the name and address of the student, as well as information regarding the psychological problem.”
They’re coming for your children because if they can control your children, they can control our future. This bill needs to be stopped now.
