Six months after Lodi Unified School District discussed eliminating some physical education requirements, fitness test results released by the California Department of Education on Wednesday show that more than a third of the district’s fifth-graders are overweight.

The state’s body composition standards are based on two measures: the percent of fat in a child’s body and the child’s body mass index.

    Not hard to figure out WHY kids who are healthier do better in school. Exercise releases endorphins, endorphins make you feel better about yourself and reduce stress, the more positive you are about yourself then more confident you are in school.

    I would like to know how they were accessing "healthy"? My youngest weighs 20+ lbs more than most girls her age, but she can do more push ups than most and has ran in several 5k runs beating all other girls in her age group. Most "health assessments" would say she is obese, but she is more physically fit than a majority of others her age.
