shappell@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - A PETA spokeswoman has suggested that Boonsboro High School discontinue dissections as part of the science curriculum, saying the act can lead students to violent acts in the future. But Principal Richard Akers said the practice is more likely to send biology students into the science field than a life of violence. In an Oct. 15 letter to Akers, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Education Specialist Patricia Trostle said students are more likely to commit acts of violence because they are desensitized to it as a result of performing dissections in biology or anatomy classes.
