Tell Oral Roberts University to Stop Grading Students on Their Fitbit Activity!

Proud2Bme blogger Kaitlin Irwin has launched a petition challenging Oral Roberts University’s Fitbit requirement. ORU is requiring freshmen to wear Fitbits that will track their daily aerobic activity, as well as their whereabouts, weight and sleeping habits—and then grading them based on the data they collect.

Kaitlin says, “I wrote this petition because I believe it is ridiculous and unfair to grade people on their bodies. Every body is different, with a range of abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Putting a grade or value on that is not right.”

There are many healthier, unregimented ways to educate students and encourage physical activity. Sign the Change.org petition today and join Kaitlin in telling ORU to drop their harmful Fitbit requirement for good!
