Sixth-graders aren't too young to save a life
from The Boston Globe
The sixth-grade students at Blanchard Memorial School in Boxborough, Mass., weren't just taking their regular math and English classes — they were learning how to save lives. The CPR curriculum has been significantly simplified in an effort to train as many people as possible. He said students are typically certified in the emergency resuscitation techniques in ninth grade, but he decided to try working with the sixth-graders this year. The students spent parts of two days with Fire Department staff, first learning why CPR is used and how it's done, and then practicing with dummies.
