    I’m not for or against this, I need more information.
    When they enrolled and PAID their tuition, were they told about these restrictions/requirements.

    Come on now, I am happy to do whatever we can to help people NOT be obese but the finale choice is theirs. You can not make someone eat right and exercise, unless they WANT to!

    If this was a “pilot” program where they took 25 students and told them if you lose weight before graduation, your tuition would be paid for….those kids would have lost the weight, and or attended the class. They need motivation other than getting healthy and living longer!

    Good Luck!
