REDUCING ANIMAL DISSECTION IN OUR DISTRICT
Our second long term goal is to reduce the amount of dissection in our district, SD23. Did you know that 92% of students learn better using the alternatives rather than the actual animal? When these alternatives are used, all the toxic chemicals from the animals are avoided, there's no extra mess to clean up, and it's more inclusive to students whose religious or personal beliefs may go against dissections.
The question isn't "can we do this?", it's "why haven't we done it yet?"
You can do this in your school and your district too. Talk to your science teachers, talk to your school, or contact us.
