A Big Fat F!

Now children have a new reason to dread their report cards. They used to only have to worry about that "C" in math or the "Unsatisfactory" in follows directions. But now the public schools have found a new way to worry children - the BMI! That's right, the BMI! All children in Arkansas are currently being weighed on shiny new silver government scales. Their Body Mass Index is then calculated and sent home to their parents. My heart goes out to all those children dreading another reminder that they are fat! Let's just hope that "ugly" reports aren't coming next.
