Pearson: Animal Cruelty Supporter

Pearson c. 2002 Spelling Workout C

p. 5: How to cook ostrich eggs. You could make egg salad. It could make as many as 20 sandwiches. “That’s quite a meal!”

p. 40, #5: “Those trained elephants are really snart” {This is for editing. The spelling word is “smart.” My son put in “torchered” instead of “smart.” Good catch, son! He is the one that brought all this to my attention by doing that! I am pleased with him for catching and noticing that!”}

p.  41: mention of “ponies in a race” and “round up time;” photo of a person riding a bucking horse in a rodeo

p. 45: mention that prairie dogs give farmers trouble

I am vegan so this bothers me. hope PETA sees this. I tried to comment on their web site and there is a glitch, so it just kept erasing all my work (boo hoo). I hope PETA agrees that what our kids see in their textbooks, they learn from and believe to be good, right, acceptable and accurate.

Pearson (curriculum publishing company) has no place for me to write to them or call them about the content of their textbooks or workbooks. They only have methods of contact for schools to buy large numbers of texts. It appears they only care about money. If someone from Pearson (such as a marketing director, public relations, editor, curriculum writer) gets this message, please input it into the system and tell the people who can make a change there in their books, in order to take animal cruelty out of your curricula! Thanks!

PETA, if you see this, contact Pearson. Perhaps you know how to do so. Perhaps they will fear you enough to care about what you say. Thanks!
