    We’ve never done any dissections in our school. Some other classes have had to dissect hearts, lungs and other organs from animal to look at and cut in to, but nothing’s happened recently so I think the school doesn’t do it anymore. If I find out that we still do dissections, I’ll be the first to speak to my head teacher!

    Back when I was in High School they had an animal welfare type club who wanted to have an option for kid’s that didn’t want to dissect but not lose their grade. They had to present their case at the administration meeting (it took a month to get it onto the meeting agenda) but they stuck with it and they were able to convince the school board to allow virtual dissection. Problem was they did’nt have money budgeted for the software so the kids had car-washes bake sales and stuff and finally raised 1500.00 to pay for the software suite that was approved by the biology department and solved the problem. Just sayin if you want or believe in something enough and are willing to throw some time and effort at it something good can come of it;)

    We had to dissect a chicken leg or a chicken thigh and I thought that was disgusting and they stopped the dissection since I spoke up for what was right.

    When I was 16 (I’m 23 now) we were required to dissect fetal pigs in our Biology class. I knew I couldn’t do it and after being on the Peta 2 site I realized I could say something about it. I talked to my teacher and explained to him that I didn’t believe I needed to dissect an animal in order to learn and told him I could not do it. He agreed to look into alternatives and ended up finding an online program for me to do that was pretty much a virtual dissection with quiz questions about the different parts of the pig.

    I had to be in the room the first day they brought in the pigs because he didn’t have the program ready for me. I ended up having to leave the room because I started crying. Lol. I’m very thankful that I had a teacher that was open-minded about it all. I wouldn’t have been able to cut into that poor baby pig.
