This minor qualifies an individual for a middle school health endorsement in the state of Illinois. An endorsement allows a licensed educator to teach health education in the middle school full time, but in the high school a licensed educator may teach health education only part time. If a student majoring in K–12 physical education would like to qualify for the secondary school health endorsement, they must also pass the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Health Content Area Exam.
