|mom graduated form high school in !992 and took a 2 year anantomy/physiology class her Junior and senior year in school. You were given 1 cat for the 2 year course and learned every muscle, bone, body part, etc. It was a very informative class. I would take it again if given the chance.
Cat dissection is not routinely done in high school biology. It is typically reserved for AP courses or Anatomy classes. This is not something your typical high school student is going to come across. Biology course will often have you dissect earthworms, frogs, fetal pigs and sheep's or cow's eyes.
Human cadavers are used in college medical courses. Cats are used in veterinary courses.
Unfortunately, unlike human medicine where one can donate him or herself to medical science, cats are often sold into the market by "brokers." These people can get animals from people who get them free from unsuspecting people giving away their "free to a good home" pets. It is important that the schools are getting their animals from a reputable source.
When adopting an animal to someone, check references and ALWAYS ask for a small fee. This will often times discourage these types of prople form "adopting" your pet just to turn around and sell for profit.
