Hart et al. (population health and reproduction, health sciences librarian, and behavior and physiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, U. of California Davis) consider the reasons for animal dissection in precollege education from a variety of perspectives, to understand current practice and why it has adapted to the use of alternative options so slowly. Writing for secondary school teachers who are interested in advancing science education and those concerned with the use of animals for dissection, they explore the historic, legislative, and educational aspects of performing dissection in classrooms. They first discuss the crisis in science education, the history that has led to current practice, and give an overview of the testing, guidelines, and regulatory framework. The perspectives of teachers (and how to empower them to find alternatives), student attitudes, and how animals are used are then presented, as well as suggestions for developing and accessing new teaching resources. Tables listing organizations, loan programs, websites, and other information, with descriptions of the resources, are incorporated throughout.
