Where the (ADHD) Boys Are

Dropping out of school, according to this article from USA Today.

From the article:

Researchers analyzed U.S. data and found that nearly one-third of students with the most common type of ADHD either drop out or delay high school graduation. That rate is twice that of students with no psychiatric disorder.

The article fails to point this reality: four times as many boys as girls suffer from ADHD.
