  • Dissection not necessary

    To the editor: Animal dissection, which was first used in classrooms in the early part of last century, is still being used in some classes.

    In recent years, dissection has been increasingly scrutinized. Experts have reevaluated the educational worth and morality of cutting up animals to “see how they work.”

    Compassionate students want to study biology without dissecting animals. Sophisticated computer simulations, videodiscs, and models have been developed to meet the needs of these students.
