If a requirement of obtaining a teaching license was first aid and CPR certification, so many lives could be saved. There are many playground injuries each year, most of which are minor accidents, but possible complications could be prevented with expedient treatment from a teacher. Bus accidents and school shootings would have fewer fatalities. There would be no funding required as each individual would pay for his/her own certification. This would be an excellent way to decrease the possibility of severe injury at school.

If CPR is given immediately, the victim's survival chances increase by 38%. Teachers should be able to provide the necessary treatment as soon as possible, in a situation requiring first aid or CPR. In child care facilities (daycares) in Minnesota, and in Michigan and Virginia statewide, this is already a requirement. Within the time it takes for EMTs to arrive, someone could die. Just seconds after someone stops breathing, whether it is due to choking, suffocation, or drowning, irreversible brain damage begins to occur. Why should people send their children to a place where only one person could save them in the event of an accident? What if they are on a field trip? Teachers should be required to have first aid certification before they obtain their licence to keep everyone safe.
