Woa-did anyone see this article about the letter kids took home saying they were too fat? Do you think it is a good idea or none of the school's business?

I have mixed reactions regarding the letter. While I think it's good they are getting the information out there to parents, I don't like the manner in which it's being handled. At our school, a physical fitness report is sent home with report cards, so no child is singled out. It contains their stats for various exercises along with their BMI. It will also has some tips on nutrition and exercise. I don't like that they are just giving out letters to the over/under weight kids. I'm sure some feel they are overstepping their bounds, but some parents are totally clueless when it comes to their child's weight.
