Superintendent sets out to save the frogs

Savannah-Chatham Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Lockamy wants
science teachers to stop using animal specimens for dissections in biology classes.

Lockamy, who raises champion show dogs and is actively involved in animal rights groups, has proposed a policy that would encourage science teachers to use virtual dissection computer software instead of the traditional frogs, fish and fetal pigs.

The policy, which was introduced to school board members for first reading last week, says the public school system´┐Żs goal is to "reduce to the greatest extent possible the dissection of animal specimens."
