The discussion of human death in school curricula, particularly Science.
In Science, the topic of recycling of nutrients (like the carbon cycle) seems to be a disguise for the the biological nature of death - one that very seldom includes humans in the picture. Is it too touchy a subject for schools? Is there a neutral, non-judgmental way of discussing biological death (including of humans) in natural curriculum links rather than in counselling when dealing with death only when it happens (which are limited to the counselor's office)?
