District Welcomes Modern Teaching Tools That Make Compassion a Part of Science Classes

Moore Haven, Fla. -- When students in the Glades County
School District start learning about animal anatomy, none of them will be
required to cut into an animal.
That's because the district is implementing a
state-of-the-art, all-virtual dissection laboratory that uses computer software
to teach the students. To help, PETA—through its national educational grants
program—is donating computers equipped with the popular ScienceWorks'
Dissection Works Deluxe to the school district. Interactive software such as
Dissection Works—which includes virtual dissection modules of frogs, fetal
pigs, earthworms, crayfish, and perch—has been shown to teach anatomy better
than animal dissection.
"PETA is delighted to help Glades County teachers take
the lead in teaching biology with humane, modern methods," says PETA
Senior Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo.
"Countless frogs, pigs, cats, and other animals are still killed for
dissection at less progressive schools, even though non-animal methods for
teaching biology are far superior."
The millions of animals who are used in school dissections
come from biological supply houses, which breed some animals and obtain others
from animal shelters or the wild. Comparative studies have repeatedly shown
that non-animal teaching methods, such as interactive computer programs, are
more effective at teaching biology than crude animal-based methods. These
programs also save time and money and increase student confidence and
satisfaction. The National Science Teachers Association endorses the use of
modern non-animal methods as replacements for animal dissection.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
