Childhood Obesity. Fact or Fiction?

Posted on March 27, 2010 at 1:34pm 0 Comments

Childhood Obesity!

This is a very popular subject now.....BUT, I have visited many schools this past year, and don't recall seeing a large nimber of overweight or obese students in the classes or in the halls. In fact, I cannot remember seeing one pudgy kid!

Do you think that this is a regional or income related issue?

I visit schools in New Jersey, most have been in middle class neighborhoods, with a good mix of incomes and ethnic…

Hi John,


I see that you joined the group I created, Distance Learning in Jersey City, and wanted to see if you are a teacher in the district.  Thanks!

Thank you for both the feedback and the advice!

Understood. The flip side for a professional is that being more public allows for more collaboration with peers. No doubt there is a trade-off, although with 48,000 members of this network, I'd say there's some social proof that the connections here must be valuable enough to justify the openness. :)

Hi, John. I'm interested in why you think that it might be bad for an educator to make themselves visible on the web?
