I have no idea about now as I'm getting up there in years, but we did dissect frogs, cow eyeballs and I know others, but I forget what now. That would
have been Junior High where I grew up and in High School it was things like salamanders and I forget what all in second year biology. I know we had
rows of bottles with preserved specimens of all kinds.
Growing up around farms and ranches and knowing the reality of where food comes from, it was not a problem for anyone. Kids were not so emmotionally
fragile and unprepared for the real world then. Now they are so detached from reality, I'd guess it would be a problem in the schools now. Depends on
their parents I suppose.
It's just part of learning about the world. I personally think its bad that kids are now so squeamish and are not exposed to reality and things like
where food comes from. Perhaps they should preface that with taking them fishing and let them clean their own fish as an introduction
own dinner and learn at the same time.
