It should be part of phys ed. It should be private. Schools have dietitians. They could have a collaboration between the dietitian and the phys ed teacher. There could be a voluntary health class offered for credit. Measuring weight just for the sake of measuring it is useless. It should be combined with education.

I thought everything these days were ANTI-BULLYING...well, start identifying the FAT kids opposed to the so called average or skinny kids, and you just open up a can of worms for MORE bullying!!!

Since Michelle Obama is the first lady, let's weigh and measure her first.

Women in government, you know. The need to be weighed and measured, for their own good.

Sure, single out fat people, weigh and measure them so their self esteem is damaged. Schools do a good job of that. Let's begin with the teachers, weigh and measure them first. It will be an eye opening experience and all will finally learn at least one thing, maybe two. The obesity quotient has to be a known too. Wouldn't want to be without that knowledge.

Why can't those in gov just leave people alone and let them live their lives without prodding and poking and shoving them into every pigeon hole possible?
