Description: 
Since 1917 New York has required that public elementary schools teach about the humane treatment and protection of animals and birds and the importance of the part they play in the economy of nature. Yet many schools are unfamiliar with the humane education law, and much of the general public remains unaware of what humane education is. The program will discuss current humane education laws; the importance of humane education in shaping pro-social thoughts, language, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors; and educational resources and programs incorporating humane education into curricula today.
