Strengthening Health Education Through State Graduation Requirements

Strengthening Health Education Through State Graduation Requirements
December 7, 2011

In 2009, New Mexico did not have a state-level health education (HE) graduation requirement, and only 34 of 89 school districts were teaching HE as a stand-alone class. School districts integrated HE into a variety of other classes, did not require an HE class to graduate from high school, or did not require that the course be taught by a state-licensed health educator. The state Senate Education Committee recommended a study to determine the level of need and public support for an HE graduation requirement.
