We've been waiting to hear news such as this for what seems like a long time!
The governor of Connecticut Dannel Malloy has officially made "An Act Concerning Dissection Choice" a new law!
What does that mean? Well basically it means that schools are now required by law to allow any student to be excused from participating in or witnessing the dissection of any and all animals as part of classroom instruction.
Which is an amazing first step to getting the whole nation on board with this sensible rule!
Every year millions of animals are killed and made to suffer just so kids can poke around in their insides for school.
The thing that infuriated so many is the same kind of biological "specimens" knowledge could be learnt on computer software, 3-D models and videos. It's also a much more inexpensive option!
Lets stop making kids learn biology in this inhumane way, and start letting them learn in a much more safe and fun way!
Way to go, Connecticut!
