Step 3: Take Action

Let's be real: Approaching your school's administration about dissection can seem intimidating, but peta2 is there for you every step of the way. The truth is, some school officials can be pretty out of touch with the newest technologies, and they may not even know that dissection is cruel or that there are alternatives that teach students more effectively, save schools money, and spare the lives of animals.

Use the resources below to take on dissection at your school!

Remember: Always be polite! By asking your principal or teacher for an alternative to dissection, you're asking him or her to respect your opinion and your ethics. If school officials say "No" at first, don't get mad—and don't give up! E-mail us for help.
