An ever increasing problem for children and teens in the US is obesity. For this discussion, tell me your opinion on the following:

Schools annually assess the vision and hearing of its students in addition to assessing the physical growth of children by measuring the height and weight. Should schools also be calculating body mass index (BMI) and sending notices home if the child’s BMI is high?

Find another student’s post who has taken the opposite stand on this issue and point out something her/she overlooked
