Do Dissections Teach Animal Cruelty?

External News Details

Robert Rosenberger [assistant professor in the School of Public Policy] wrote an op-ed in the AJC on Sunday, July 21 discussing how mandatory dissection policies within education might need new consideration and review.  As he explains in Do Dissections Teach Animal Cruelty, "We should not let the news of Connecticut’s student choice legislation pass by without considering how similar policies here in Georgia might benefit our own children. It is time to start exploiting the untapped potential for computer simulations in biology instruction. It is time to talk about putting the ethical choices involved in classroom dissection into the hands of students and their families." Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution, July 21, 2013.
