What Do They Believe: Teachers’ Perceptions of Adolescent’s Body Mass Index (BMI), a Look Into Its Affects
Lightfoot, Shaina Sharie

2011, Master of Education (MEd), Bowling Green State University, Curriculum and Teaching.
This thesis reports on the perspective that junior high school teachers have on their student’s academic success and sense of belonging as it relates to their body mass index (BMI). This study used a questionnaire, developed and implemented by the researcher, Shaina S. Lightfoot. This allowed for a qualitative analysis to be conducted. The questionnaire asked the teachers questions about current classroom enrollment, sense of belonging and academic success as it pertains to each student in their current classroom. Analysis of the data showed that there is a strong relationship between a student’s BMI and their sense of belonging and a weak relationship between a student’s BMI and their academic success. The specific results, implications of the findings and the limitations are also discussed within the study.
