Breathing for Diplomas

JACKSON, Miss.  Your high school kids, as part of their graduation requirements, may have to take a course in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training (CPR).

Lawmakers have sent the Governor a bill that would mandate the class and that students also be taught how to use automated external defibrillators.  The course, with its’ one-half credit toward a diploma, would be developed by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.

If signed into law, The American Heart Association said Mississippi would become the 11th state to have CPR training in high school.
