I think its a good way to teach children to be nice to animals and how to look after them.

I don't see a problem with it if the animal is properly cared for and the teacher has knowledge of the pet.

Craig, I agree, that it's a great way to teach children to be respectful of animals. I see too many children growing up idolizing animal abusers and it's pretty disturbing. I was taught to respect animals and if I bring an animal into my house it's my responsibility to give that animal the best life possible.

That's nice, your obviously trailer trash and cannot afford meat. I personally never wish cancer on anyone, but don't delude yourself that your immune just because you don't eat meat.

BTW as pointed by another poster humans are animals so anything is fair game YUM! HAHA

My teacher had a class pet, but it was never played with. i always felt bad for it and it was so scared by the kids. they would tease it a lot. plus, its cage was WAY too small for it. I never got to sit right next to it, which was very sadening, i always wanted to just watch it run around.

I think we should have class pets in class because its a good way to teach responibleity to some kids but only if its like fish or that and they could have one kid feed the fish so they learn what its like to have a pet

Check out the website www.PetsintheClassroom.org . It is a grant program called Pets in the Classroom that provides up to $150 to K-6th grade teachers for the purpose of purchasing a classroom pet and/or pet supplies. It's really easy to apply for and you hear back within a week as to if you will receive it. The website also has some great information on why having a pet in the classroom is so beneficial.

What? So this animal use isn't animal abuse? It doesn't happen often but here, again, we agree.

Only if the pet is well cared for, and only older children, 4th grade and up. We had a pet rat in my 5th grade class. I ended up taking her home with me the last day of school, ever since I've always had one. Bringing the one I have now to the vet this weekend to have a tumor removed. I was hoping this one wouldn't end up with one, but they all eventually get them. Hope it's not cancerous, but it feels like it. =/

Actually, you are sort of like a tumor. Yes, an unwanted tumor that keeps coming back.

This is how you reply to well wishes for your pet? I wasn't being sarcastic. You have some serious hate/anger issues if you can't even acknowledge that someone who disagrees with you hopes your ill pet gets well. Regardless of our differences, we all love our pets and want them to stay healthy.

Forum Trolls: Someone who actively watches a forum. Not to be confused with a lurker, or just a forum frequenter, the troll annoys, pesters, and generally insults any thread opened. Trolls are people who want to get on your nerves. They will usually lurk around the forums and wait for an opportunity to annoy or attack a user. The best way to ignore a troll is not to flame back, but to report and move on. Trolls are no good and should be exiled.

Examples of such trolls are Squach, Gokeefe, Hiss of Breath, etc.
