Gwendolyn Williams, a third-grader at PS 29, was told she was overweight by the Department of Education because she was 1 pound heavier than the index.
Gwendolyn Williams is a pencil-thin, bubbly 9-year-old who is a perfectly healthy third-grader.
But according to city bureaucrats, she’s practically obese.

Block captains breaking down your doors coming soon. Mrs. Cravitz with a taser.
War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.
Gay good, transsexual good, fat bad!
We have to promote the good.
If she’s overweight then what is Michelle?
Anybody want to guess what a picture of the kid’s teachers would look like? This is simply ridiculous. We get the other side of the coin when it comes to our grand daughter.
We are asked if she is eating enough because she is so skinny and short. I just tell them that she eats a balanced meal at home, so if she isn’t they need to check the school’s meals.
Then I let them know that I was shorter than 98% of the kids in my class, and so skinny that they called me bird legs, and just look at me now. Lots of extra pounds. Probably be best to leave the kid alone.
When I started to try to eat healthy to please the nagging adults, I gained weight. When I ate only what I wanted I was skinny. Could be the school should just but out.
Public education is dead dead dead today, apologies to any Freepers involved in it. Sorry, but your biz has been completely infected and destroyed by liberals. Kids would be a hell of a lot better off today getting involved with Khan academy on the internet along with studying with parents and neighborhood kids. Public education has been destroyed absolutely by the left and replaced by communist indoctrination. US values like freedom and the constitution are no longer being taught in schools. What you are doing today is sending your kid through a mind poisoning. Wake up and look at this ............
kid isn’t fat. she’s healthy. overlords are idiots.
if it’s my block mrs cravitz ain’t gonna make it to the end of it.
‘Fat-shaming, experts called the practice on Thursday, criticizing both the fallibility of BMI calculations and the mental-health effects of kids being graded on their size.’
Before you know it schools will implement Mao’s struggle sessions.
A struggle session was a form of public humiliation used by the Communist Party of China in the Mao Zedong era to shape public opinion and to humiliate, persecute, and/or execute political rivals and class enemies. In general, the victim of a struggle session was forced to admit to various crimes before a crowd of people who would verbally and physically abuse the victim until he or she confessed.
During Mao’s leadership, the Chinese people attended many different types of struggle sessions, sometimes consisting of 100,000 people. During the 1950s when Mao’s Government began the Land Reform movement, poorer peasants seized the land from their landlords, who were given the title of exploiting class, and an estimated 2 million landlords were swiftly executed after being subjected to a struggle session.
What really fries my bacon is when some leftist “do-gooder” TELLS the child that “because I felt you ought to know”.
I heard some information on the radio that many companies are hiring older folks.
I doubt it's all because of saving healthcare costs because they're on Medi.
The story doesn't say she was told she was "fat". The story says that the girl was told that she was "one pound" "over weight".
Cute kid and not remotely fat.
Public school is child abuse.
this is not a fitness program
this is an escalation of “children belong to the state.”
Once they determine your child to be overweight, they can claim ‘child abuse’ and yank your kid. (When will people, including a lot of Freepers, stop taking things the enemy says at face value?)
You will be required to pay ‘support’ to the state -
“US values like freedom and the constitution are no longer being taught in schools. What you are doing today is sending your kid through a mind poisoning. “ That statement is true and Worth Repeating.
Publik Skools are brainwashing factories for secularization and marketing of pop culture products-—to create addicts and consumers and group thinkers.
Only Classical Education gives children the tools to “think”. Only Classical Education teaches Excellence and Virtue. All schools, even Catholic schools have had their curricula contaminated by Marxist/Progressive infiltration.
Take a look at the curricula in the first McGuffey Readers in 1800s.
The people like John Dewey had this Wundtian mindset—and the following agenda:
“Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.” -——Bertrand Russell quoting Johann Gottlieb Fichte, the head of philosophy & psychology who influenced Hegel and others Prussian University in Berlin, 1810
Common Core is the Fichte’s Dream.
i want a class picture of all the teachers and staff at the school. i guarantee 75% will be big fat a$$ women. her mom’s in no danger of starving.
That’s just what I was thinking about too. I’d sure like to see some of those pictures.
we had a saying at the beach when i was younger. surfs up the heavies are rolling in.
LOL good description.LOL
the other observation was. ooo look out. beached whales. sorry.
“Cute kid and not remotely fat.”
Nice build, as well.
She is probably carrying a few pounds extra of muscle than the carbohydrate-saturated “waifs” who weigh a couple of pounds less. After all, muscle weighs more than fat.
If the kid would just get a proper Lesbian butch haircut, she would pass the weight test. /s
Next step is obviously the Mike Obunga starvation diet...
Im glad they dont have that crap down here. My 11 y.o. grand daughter has been a gymnast for several years. In every competition she medals. She would not make the BMI standard because shes well muscled. Remember Gabby Gifford? Like all good gymnasts very well developed muscles.
BMI is a worthless measure of weight. Trust the idiots in public education to love it.
She looks perfectly fit to me. Bear in mind that the camera even adds a few pounds. The mom has a right to be upset.
That’s the fat girl? Are you kidding me. She could use a good meal.
Every time I get a fitness check from my insurer, they inform me I’m overweight, My BMI is 25.2, up to 24.9 is normal. I’m 5’9 171, 57. my body fat is 11%, their target for my age is 20, my waist is 33, their target is 40. I do a 20 minute workout every day but Sunday alternating between running on an elliptical for two ten minute stretches and pure weight work on the other days.
I ask them if my body fat is almost ten percent below their target, then what is that extra weight I’m carrying? It doesn’t matter to them. I was never a skinny rail, not built that way, as a college athlete I was one pound less than I am now, with a 29 in waist and a 46 inch chest, so at 155 pounds, I’d be near death. It takes nothing into account how you are built. My buddy is my size, but narrow shouldered, weighs ten pounds less than me, with a beer gut and doesn’t look or feel like he could keep up, but he is OK according to these experts!
How do you like this article, this is the kind of psychopaths they have teaching kids today............
DiBlasio is his Marxist moniker. Warren Wilhelm is his real name.
WhuT?! Heck, she is average weight for kids here in Japan..
Those fascists are nuts.
I am still wondering if the Libs (LIVs) will ever catch on to what is happening :/
We had that problem when I was leaving the military.. they changed their weighing technique. It didn’t take into account how much muscle mass there was in the body :/ (and, most of us know, muscle weighs more than fat)...
What’s worse.. he actually looks a bit like AlBore(Gore) in that pic >.<
If shes overweight then what is Michelle?
crao.. can’t stop laughing.. tears in eyes.. ty. needed an uplifter ;^)
