Parents give low grade to BMI added to student report cards

Posted: Updated:

Illinois is one of several states that gives students the option to measure a student's BMI and then include the results in report cards that are sent home.

Doctors say it's another useful tool to combat childhood obesity. Some parents say they aren't so sure.
