Animal Rights (AR) groups led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Peta and the Institute of Humane Education (IHE) are campaigning across the US to implement what they refer to as “humane education”, a program of extreme ideological material they aspire to teach in our school systems. They have been successful in a few cities, but up to now have not been successful at the state or federal levels, despite repeated efforts to introduce legislation.
One such effort briefly succeeded in a California school system and some of this “education” did take place. The approach was to show a movie involving animals, such as Finding Nemo, immediately followed by a discussion focused on how cruel it is to eat fish. Parents were angered when their children came home declaring they could no longer eat meat or fish.
