i think this makes me a bit more angry than the kid getting arrested for the video game…..

Weight Grade on Report Cards

being over weight is a problem here in the states, i’m not exception I AM OVERWEIGHT! However a day doesnt go by that i’m not aware of it and i’m not so over weight that it hinders my everyday life. I walk to class every day from my house up flights of stairs each day and i’m still overweight. I don’t exercise regularly …why you might ask well i have asthma, and its not just asthma its active induced asthma or more commonly know as exercise-induced asthma this mean i have to carry a rescue inhaler around at all times just playing a good game of ping-pong and set off my asthma its not fun. also this stupid inhaler i carry around has steroids in it its a small dose, however its still enough to effect you. i try to eat as well as i can but as a college student that doesn’t work all that well sometimes. my plan is as soon as i get moved home I’m going to change my diet because I’ll have time to do so.

ok back to the article above enough about me. Having a BMI on a report card definitely hurts the kids. i mean going home to tell you parents you are over weight ..when you are prolly already aware of it because kids make fun of you ever day. that BMI doesn’t help the self-esteem at all. i mean i don’t even have kids, but I’m offended by this and understand how stupid this really is…

  1. I just don’t get it. There’s got to be a line drawn where the school doesn’t have a say in how people raise their kids. Unfortunately some parents would RATHER the school babysit their kids all day.

    I’ll agree with BMI ratings on report cards if they agree to put “Decency and Respect” grades on there. Oh wait, that’s never going to happen.

  2. I don’t think the BMI should be on there. I also think it’s not an accurate measure. I think it just assumes that everyone should fit one standard, but that’s not possible.

    I work out regularly but under the BMI I’m obese, even for being a few pounds over the recommended weight. But I think I’m pretty healthy.
