BMI Screenings in September: What do you think?

Parents, what do you think about the Massachusetts Public Health Council
requiring all public schools to regularly perform Body Mass Index (BMI) screenings on students starting in September?

Recent data show that more than one-third of all middle school and high school students in Massachusetts are considered either overweight or obese

The kids won't be notified of the information regarding their weight but parents will be notified in writing.

Do you think this will help kids? Are you comfortable with this new procedure?
