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.
