Standardized height and weight charts do not work for all people. Often enough, individuals who have naturally strong physiques and/ or regularly engage in strenuous physical activity will, if the standard methods are used, fall into a category that classifies them as overweight.
In the case of an 11 year-old girl in Florida, school officials seem to have made no effort to note that the height and weight measurement system that they were using did not appear to provide an accurate assessment. True to form for they who have been taught that the system that the experts can't be wrong, they ignored what they saw with their own eyes and robotically recorded that she has a weight problem.
This is the girl:
“Lily is tall, athletic, solid muscle by no means is she overweight,” [The girl's mother Kristen] Grasso told the local news station.
"The state of Massachusetts thinks 10-year-old Cameron Watson is fat, and they sent a letter to his family letting them know.
The multi-sport athlete and wrestling champion is roughly 94 pounds, but his school said in a letter that based on his BMI, the child is overweight.
“I wrestle, play football, baseball, I ride bikes, play basketball, baseball, MMA,” Cameron objected. “I know I’m not obese so I don’t really care about the letter…I just crumpled it up.”........
