Kindness and appreciation of animals is a great topic to highlight for kids, and for anyone.

That is good I have met teenagers before that are nice to animals but they decide that they can't have anything to do with big dogs when they are older unless they are puppies and once they are full grown they want nothing to do with them and they only think that little dogs and puppies are cute. I always volunteer with kids and animals and I always make sure that the kids understand that they should be nice to all animals and want to do what they can no matter what the size or the age of the dog or cat or other pet.

It's great for kids to have an awareness of what's happening to animals. Once there is interaction, they can't help but learn to love them and care for them. Good job, Ms. Rosenthal!

I hope the parents are getting involved in these activities, too. Kudos to Ms. Rosenthal for being a voice for the animals.

It is great to see a program like this one. It is always a good idea to show children how to be kind to all living creatures.

I agree. Start teaching them when they are young and we will have adults who know how to treat animals.

It isn't clear from the article what activities are actually conducted in the schools, but ANY activities geared toward making young people more sensitive to kindness toward animals is a plus. Since kindness towards animals is not always taught or demonstrated in the homes (and, at times, the opposite is shown), the schools really are obligated to try to teach this at an early age.

It is about time that schools do MORE to help prevent cruelty towards animals!!! An A+ to New York for taking the initiative. I hope ALL states follow with similar programs--and SOON.
