In addition to getting good grades, some students now have to start worrying about their weight.
Schools in 19 states have started having annual weigh-ins for students for all students. These tests are conducted by dividing a person's weight by the square of their height. This number is then compared to growth charts relating to a person's age and gender in order to determine whether they are obese or healthy.
The letters are usually sent home in a sealed envelope which let parents know whether their child's weight is healthy or unhealthy. Many families think that these “fat letters” could damage kid’s self-esteem, but doctors say that this is the best way of letting parents know whether their child is overweight.
Do you think these letters are helpful or damaging to the student’s self-esteem?
