Thank you for not dissecting. Please speak with a parent or guardian for support, then approach your school’s principal or guidance counselor for help addressing this issue. You should not be forced to harm animals when so many great alternatives exist! Check out this page to see if you live in a state that requires your school to give you an alternative. If you live in one of those states, you should print off the page for your state and let your teacher know that you need to be given an alternative. If you don’t live in one of these states, you should contact your principal and explain that you are morally against dissecting animals and would like to have an alternative. After you do that, start working on getting a dissection choice policy at your school. You can find out more information on how to do that here, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
