I'm all for health screenings in schools, but I thought it was generally agreed by now that the BMI is, to put it charitably, an imperfect measurement. Seems like this might be a way for schools to act like they're helping, without actually having to do much.

I think this is going to be awful for some kids. It'd be much better to have the evaluation done at a doctor's office.
