All elementary students should have access to free swim lessons as part of their education

Every child has the right to be safe in the water, yet accidental drowning is the second leading cause of death in children. And all those deaths are preventable.

As summer draws to a close, many parents are thinking about how to strengthen their kids’ swimming skills with those important fall swimming lessons. But swimming lessons at public facilities are hard to come by, and it has become even harder to find lessons in the COVID years. The only alternative is private lessons, which are expensive and out of reach for many parents.

The current system for swimming lessons is not working. We need a new approach to teaching children to swim.
