Great that the kids learn science but I would draw the line at frog dissections. That is incredibly inhumane and given the fact that frogs are dying out all over the world, it is not responsible. If they must dissect something, it should be dead before they start, and you cannot do that with a frog.

I second Janet’s comment about dissecting frogs. NOT good. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has mentioned dissection simulation programs or something to that effect. I’d be happy to try and get something like that for the District.
