Speciesism as potential topic in new social justice class

Lesley Fox, you rock.

Lesley Fox, you rock.

Lesley Fox, the Humane Education Program Director of Vancouver’s Humane Society, argues speciesism should be included in the new course work for a social justice class being developed for Grade 12.

Fox claims, “If we are going to discuss social justice concepts such as oppression and exploitation, animals should be included.”

Last year Fox worked with the Vancouver school board to successfully create a policy allowing students to choose not to participate in animal dissections in science class, making Vancouver the fist major Canadian district to do so.

    Wow, I love this! I was just thinking today about doing my essay topic in Science Fiction class on Speciesism in War of the Worlds. And now this! It totally rocks. Wow, cool. It SHOULD be much more integral in discussions of social justice. Duh. I was also painfully aware that the course description of a Hunter ethics course includes nearly everything BUT animals.
