Huh!? School Cautions Parent That This Girl Is Fat

Does this 11-year-old girl look fat to you? Obviously not, but health officials in Collier County, Florida, still saw fit to send a letter home cautioning the parents that their daughter is overweight.

Lily Grasso stands five-foot-five and weighs 124 pounds, and officials classified her as overweight according to the body mass index.

Her mother, Kristen Grasso, was shocked to receive the letter, saying it could harm her daughter's self esteem.

Tell us what you think about this. Should schools be doing this screening or should it be left to parents?
