How could naked fat tests be conducted for so long? The disturbing news out of North Kingstown is the number of years the naked fat test were conducted, the number of adults who were aware and the inaction to stop it. The allegations remain centered on students who were alone in a closet with the basketball coach who conducted body fat tests on the boys. There remains to be a plausible explanation why the coach would include an option of the students getting completely nude.
Students claim the coach would ask if they were “shy or not shy” when performing the tests where shy students kept their underwear on, non-shy students were naked. While various experts in the field have stepped forward, not one expert has encouraged testing students in the nude because it seems unnecessary to measure below the waist. The coach has remained silent and denied there were naked fat test.
