Use of Animals in Education: Policy and Practice in the United States.
Orlans, F. Barbara
Journal of Biological Education, v25 n1 p27-32 Spr 1991
Attitudes and policy developments in the United States on use of animals in education are reviewed, and the legislative position outlined. The influence of science competitions and national teacher associations on practice is discussed. The common invasive experimentation on sentient animals by young and inexperienced students is provoking increasing pressure for change and a more compassionate attitude toward animals. (Author)
