It has become routine for NYC schools to report the body mass index (BMI) of students on report cards. This is a CRITICAL issue. Not only does it begin to scrutinize weight at a very early age, it is also being done without education, leaving parents confused about what, exactly, to do with this information. This is not an opposition to health, it is an opposition to addressing health in this way. It is my very strong opinion that this practice be stopped immediately and I am not alone. I came across a petition drafted by 2 women who have, themselves, struggled with eating disorders. I urge you to take a moment to take a stand. Visit http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-dangerous-practice-of-weight-grades-on-report-cards-4 to sign the petition. Go now and please pass this along to anyone and everyone. Thank you, most sincerely.
