Maybe the scholarships can be given to students who promise to quit smoking when they go to college.....

Hmmmm....wonder if it would have any impact on NM children's obesity rates if parents stopped driving their children to the front door of their school (and to every other activity) and instead had them ride their bikes, walk or take the bus?

My understanding is that elementary school kids get one session of p.e. a week. Aside from recess, during which lots of kids engage in non-aerobic activity, kids don't seem encouraged to get exercise through play at school. It's a shame there isn't more time and funding for p.e. in those early school years, when it could have a positive effect on kids' health and long-term exercise habits.

I drove my kids to school when they were elementary-aged.  

We lived more than 3 miles from the school.  We chose an out of district school.                       If we would have sent them to the in district school, we still would have driven them to school.  Reason being is the constant bombardment from the media of bad things happening.  That has instilled a fear in many parents minds (mine included).
