Pa. school drops required fitness class for obeseThe Associated Press
OXFORD, Pa. - Obese students at a historically black college near Philadelphia won't have to take a fitness class to graduate after all.
Lincoln University faculty nixed the idea this week amid complaints the so-called "fat course" undermined a school principle of equal treatment.
The school had initiated the policy to address high rates of obesity and diabetes, especially in the African-American community.
About 80 students had gotten e-mails saying they had to take the fitness course to graduate. The plan was to target students with a body mass index of 30 or above. That's considered obese.
Well so much for the value of education and trying to "teach" some one. What about all the people that cry that all the problems with everything is a "lack" of education and opertuinty...
Be Damned I guess. Sad,.... but that's only my opinion.
