N.Y. Schools Begin Tracking Obesity Levels

Story: N.Y. Begins Tracking Obesity Levels in Some Schools

One more thing for teens to be stressed out about in school. Now we can actually give them a concrete number to support their subconscious beliefs about gaining weight. Measuring BMI will in no way effect the self-esteem of skinny kids. How about this for research...take a look kids with their shirts off, realize they are chubbier than kids 20 years ago, then put some money back into physical education in schools. Or just ask any doctor about the skyrocketing rates of diabetes in children. Just save the embarrassment of forcing kids to step on scales before they walk into class.
