I've recently been reading about the government's proposal to make animal welfare a part of the National Curriculum of UK schools. A recent consultation was held to find out the public response to the plans and I sincerely hope that they go ahead. I believe it can only be a good thing to educate children about how to treat animals; a step which could reduce animal abuse and neglect in later years.
Oh, what a brilliant idea. All countries in the world should do this! Crossing paws that the proposal gets accepted, or whatever the word is for that kind of thing
