Unfortunetly, there is a 'why not'.well I don't know much about scuba diving and safe diving regulation... but I would like to see the freediving as part of the program they have for kids at the school the same way they do with clasical swimming - baseball ect - why not ?
I think that more people die from freediving (even though it might be because they don't do it safe) than from baseball. Many parents might not like their kids being taught to freedive.
I also think that it is less attractive and understandable to the crowds, I don't think that people who play baseball ever got the gazes I got when I explained what freediving is. -Though I defenitly think baseball is an odd game and can't find the attraction in playing it. You're also not likly to make money out of freediving ever, or to have regular competitions and a broad community. And the media (atleast here) is virtually ignoring it's existed.
I understand that those reasons are also the reasons you want people to learn freediving, but they also prevent people from it.
Freediving also needs good conditions, I can't think of a good excuse to teach people freediving if the only divable water they can find in their state is a swimming pool.
Freediving also goes against one's natural intinct - to breath. Most people don't see any reason to overcome this instinct, or to trust crazy people who tell you so.
It could work in some places that the population is prone to dive, like cyprus/turky/italy/hawaii etc.
