Many school districts in Illinois are hurting due to fiscal cutbacks, and the hurt is only going to get worse as the state attempts to rectify its huge budget deficit.
One school district is exploring selling advertising space to corporations within its schools. In the lunchroom, and just about anywhere. On your locker door there may be an advertisement for McDonalds. Open your locker and there is another for Adidas. An iPhone banner hangs in one hallway, a US Cellular banner in another. The school auditorium and sports stadium are renamed. You get the gist.
Do you think selling corporate advertising space in public schools is appropriate?
