Being overweight and trying to lose weight is typically kept a secret, so schools don't usually announce a weight loss program.   
    What do you think about this?
           (vote for one)

  Definitely should be kept a secret. An announced school weight
    loss program would embarrass and label overweight kids.

Everyone can see overweight kids, so we should talk about it 
    openly in school, just like any other health problem.

  If 1/3 of kids in school had a drug addiction or a dangerous
    disease, we'd sure talk about it
, so why not talk about solutions
    to help overweight kids
