    It seems harmless enough, but school is compulsory, therefore the students are being forced to see the advertisements. I'm pretty sure that goes against the laws of advertising. If it doesn't, it should.

    No because it's school not NASCAR.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    If advertisements in school became the norm, I would reward my child for culture jamming.

    In a sense, true.
    But, IMO, advertising is propaganda, even worse.
    Our children should never have this crap forced on them.
    It would bother me not to have advertising made illegal.
    "The laws of advertising" ...a new one....are there any???
    And I do not watch "Mad Men".....
    The schoold need money.....or so they say...... how about all of those overpaid (100,000 dollars annually) take a 20% pay cut...
    And why is it that union members always take the cuts, but never the CEOs and executives.
    I could walk into any school and show them where the waste is and how to rectify.....anyone poor could......they must open their books and do some very exact explaining....if not....be fined and be imprisoned.....

    I've been seeing some advertising banners on some of our buses here.
