Academy of Arts & Minds Charter High School Welcomes Modern Teaching Tools That Make Compassion a Part of Science Classes

Grove, Fla. — When students at the Academy of Arts & Minds Charter High
School start learning about anatomy, none of them will cut into a frog, thanks
to a donation from PETA that will replace all frog dissection laboratories at
animal rights group—through its national educational grants program—has
given the school 10 iPads with preloaded copies of Punflay's Virtual Frog Dissection Educational
App software, which features 3-dimensional organ views, anatomical
comparisons of human and frog organs, and dissection tools. Interactive
software such as Virtual Frog has been shown to teach anatomy better than
donation will help the Academy of Arts & Minds take the lead in teaching
biology with humane, modern methods," says PETA Vice President of
Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "Countless frogs, pigs, cats,
and other animals are still killed for dissection at less progressive schools,
even though non-animal methods for teaching biology are far superior."
millions of animals who are used in school dissections come from biological
supply houses, which breed some animals and obtain others from animal shelters
or the wild. Comparative studies have repeatedly shown that non-animal teaching
methods, such as interactive computer programs, are more effective at teaching
biology than crude dissections. These programs also save time and money and
increase student confidence and satisfaction. The National Science Teachers
Association and the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society endorse the use of
modern non-animal methods as replacements for animal dissection.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
