									HS Health Education (Page 1 of 2)                   Core Content Version 4.1                                                                Proficiency Quest
HEALTH EDUCATION – Basic to health education is a foundation of knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors impacting healthy lifestyles. Healthy family
relationships are critical to maintaining the family unit, which historically has been considered the fabric of society. While parents are the primary source
from which children learn skills to act responsibly in relationships, the community and school play supportive roles. Individuals who are confident in their
knowledge of themselves and the relationships and interactions within families and other interdependent groups, and who are able to apply skills of
developing and maintaining healthy relationships are better able to participate in a healthy family life, to nurture and support others, and to successfully
manage their changing life responsibilities.
