Doesn’t it make sense to teach all students how to use CPR in the event they come across someone who’s in dire need?

That’s exactly what happened recently in Butler where a student collapsed at a bus stop, an incident reported in the Daily Record.

Apparently it’s required at the Health Care Science Academy of the Morris County School of Technology – and I know from seeing other articles that other schools have contemplated requiring a course in it.
It's sensible, and not taking away from any other courses.

I've done it myself, and a few hours out of the day once a year could probably go a long way in saving a life.


No doubt. Very practical and not time consuming.

I’d say a course should be given in CPR/AED training once every year.

Should CPR training be required of all students in high school?
