HNN News article on Virginia Tech

Last week, I published an op ed piece on the Virigina Tech shootings, “Mental Health is Everyone’s Business.”

We had an interesting discussion in my Historical methods class this afternoon about prejudice against the mentally ill. One of my students has Asperger’s syndrome and said that after Columbine he was taken out of school for a few weeks as “a precaution.” I wonder if this will happen to other students now, if it isn’t already.
