Lawmaker Wants Teachers In Hawaii Weighed For Obesity

Here is more anti-fat news:
HONOLULU -- A state lawmaker has suggested Hawaii's public schoolteachers be forced to weigh in as part of the fight against obesity in students, KITV in Honolulu reported.

State Rep. Rida Cabanilla introduced a resolution in the house requesting that the Board of Education establish an obesity database among public schoolteachers.

"You cannot keep a kid to a certain standard that you yourself is not willing to keep," Cabanilla said.
My local school would have to replace a bunch of teachers.

There will be new Sesame Street propaganda:
This season, Sesame Street is all about "Healthy Habits for Life." The new initiative will find each episode of the 36th season dealing with children's health issues. Powerful partners in the program include the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, PBS, The Parenting Group, YMCA of USA, the Ad Council and the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Nutrition, activity, and size acceptance are three key focuses.
So I guess the TV show will both tell the kids not to get fat, and also tell them that it is perfectly okay to be fat.
