By Michela Mangiaracina Comment

Today, the House of Representatives of the State of New Mexico passed a House Memorial Bill to declare February 27, 2017 Brain Education Day in the House of Representatives. The memorial bill also requested that higher education and public education departments in the state consider implementing Brain Education into professional development for teachers and into student curriculum.

The memorial bill was introduced by Representative Linda Trujillo and passed unanimously by the legislators in attendance (70-0). New Mexico is the first state to declare a Brain Education Day, although New York City declared an IBREA Brain Education Day on January 8, 2009.

Ilchi Lee's Brain Education system of personal development has been applied to schools around the United States, especially New York City, as well as South Korea, El Salvador, and Liberia. In New Mexico, a three-month pilot project introduced Brain Education to seventy Zuni Pueblo middle school students, and more than 50 teachers in the Santa Fe public school system have been trained to implement Brain Education in their classrooms.

This memorial bill can open many new opportunities for Brain Education in New Mexico in the future.
