Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
This application of Virginia's Standards of Learning Objectives establishes a framework for health education and driver education instruction in the public schools to help students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for success in school and for a productive life in the years beyond. The standards, which were developed and revised with the aid of teachers, supervisors, administrators, teacher educators, and representatives of state and volunteer health agencies and organizations, are intended to provide parents and other citizens with a better understanding of what students are expected to learn. Following a listing of 12 goals of health education, specific learning objectives are outlined for kindergarten through tenth grade. Topics covered include alcohol and other drugs; disease prevention and control; mental health; nutrition; personal health, growth, and wellness; and safety and first aid. A list of Department of Education staff and members of the revision committee are included. (ND)
