There were so many amazing entries for our “Cut Class Not Frogs” t-shirt contest, that I decided to pick not one winner, but three! Check out my favorite of the winning comments…

By Crystal:
Dissection?

What is there to say? Well, other than no.

You see, Dissection is defined as cutting something open to study it closer. This verb can be used in many ways at school. We dissect words, (taking apart the prefixes, suffixes and root word) the school lunches (who knows what that is?) and in some very sad cases, animals.

Our teachers tell us we do this to get a closer look at the internal organs of the creatures around us. They also tell us that we have to do it to pass. They even give the proper instructions on how to do it. But, who tells the whole truth these days? What are they not telling us?

What the teachers don’t speak of is the killing of a living thing, the life that it once lived and the other alternatives there are to dissection.

I didn’t dissect a frog in Biology, nor did I dissect the worm. I don’t need to brag about that though. I heard alot that day, as I sat and looked out the window while my peers were busy doing their lab. Students were laughing, giggling, gossiping, metal scraping; Girls were screaming, and boys were whooping. None of which sounded like a learning experience.

So now it is your turn, you can choose your fate. Do you choose to be similar to the ignorant freshman my year in biology; Or do you choose to talk to your teacher see what she can do for an alternative assignment, or maybe just having to tell her that you will have to crush your grade with an F?

The choice isn’t hard, but it isn’t easy. It shows morals and goes against the cookie cutter shape that society has made up. Stand up for yourself, and the ones without voices.

Don’t dissect.
