All Parents Should Watch “The Student Body” Documentary!

By Heidi

I was recently given the opportunity to preview a new documentary highlighting the issue of childhood obesity and the ways that lawmakers are stepping in to attempt to solve the problem (while, in actuality, they are making matters worse for kids). As a homeschool family, you might think we are exempt from things like this; but, in fact, I received a letter from my local school district this past summer, listing the things that we needed to include with our annual homeschool affidavit – and one of those things was the BMI of my children (if they fell into the specific grades listed). This is NOT a part of the Pennsylvania homeschool law, so I felt a bit put-off by this. And, in all honestly, I didn’t include this information. (I have yet to hear from them stating that I need it – if I do, I’ll be contacting HSLDA.)
