Christy Gronseth I hate the idea of animal testing, but I respect the fact that many vaccinations and treatments were found because of testing on animals. Perhaps banning the use of great apes will force scientists to put energy into alternatives to animal testing.
Christy Gronseth I loathed the mandatory holidays at my corporate workplace. The nit-picking and the time put into the parties could have been used for so many other things. I would have gladly taken the PTO instead of the ten types of casseroles that people brought in for the party.
Christy Gronseth If someone needs emergency contraception, there is no reason that they should be barred. In a society where many students still receive one-sided sexual education, it's not surprising that teens don't know how to properly use "regular" contraception and are turning to Plan B to prevent pregnancy.
Christy Gronseth I'm amazed by the lack of concern many politicians have for Global Warming. Unfortunately, there have been some spotty reports published by scientists which may have discredited the movement, but there is still an overwhelming amount of evidence that we should take immediate action.
Christy Gronseth Math and science are important, but I agree that a well-rounded education is the way to go. I've found that many of my students comprehend things better when they're allowed to move around or draw out their ideas. A one-size-fits-all education is a disservice to students everywhere.
