by BRENT RUTEMILLER, 21 October 2019
 
Tackling the national epidemic of childhood drowning head on, the International Swimming Hall of Fame, under the leadership of its Chairman, Dr. Bill Kent, will be a driving force behind Florida legislation to require swim lessons for all children before they are admitted into Kindergarten.

The proposed legislation requires each district school board and the governing authority of each private school to require that each child who is entitled to admittance to kindergarten, or is entitled to any other initial entrance into a public or private school in this state, present a certification of a school-entry health examination performed within one year before enrollment in school.  The school-entry health examination must require each child to have an understanding of water safety and have completed swimming lessons.
