Animals are already dead, and what would the use be if we didn't use them? We are using them for science education, it is teaching our kids about the different organisms and how they thrive. If the animals are dead, and we just bury them, it won't teach the students anything, if we have them dissect the animal remains then they learn about that organism.

some kids,and adults cant take seeing dead animals like that or they cant dissect them,but thats not everybody.kids can learn about the different organisms and organs of the animals in a science text book.if were not allowed to dissect humans then why would we be able to dissect animals..?its the same concept.

If some people can't take the sight of a dead animal, let alone dissect them. it is not mandatory for them to do it. No one can MAKE you do that. They may want you to, but they cant make you do it. If people think they can learn from a textbook, what will happen when and if you see the real thing? What happens if they learn right then that they can't see a dead animal or dissect one?

Pro

their grade may depend on the dissection.and if they learn from a textbook when the actual thing happens then they'll know what to do.you wouldnt want to dissect your own house pet would you?so why would you dissect an innocent animal

Con

When you dissect something, you already know about it. Your teacher teaches you about it so you know what your doing. If you read a book, then saw it, you may be in shock cause its actually happening. If you've done it before, you will be ready for it and you can act accordingly. If you ban dissection, you are banning the better knowledge of anatomy
