Lincoln's Course Controversy

At Pennsylvania's Lincoln University, freshmen are given a test for fitness and body mass index (BMI).  If a student's body mass is over 30, he or she is required to take a "Fitness Walking/Conditioning" class before graduation.

The arguments for and against the rule are pretty clear right away, with supporters saying it helps improve students' health and opponents saying it discriminates or doesn't focus on learning.

You seemed to have pretty mixed feelings (and GREAT comments) about the last health story we featured, so we're looking forward to hearing where you stand on this one.
