Allow advertising in schools

Success - Article sent! close

Schools should permit product advertising to raise money for programs, thereby keeping citizens' taxes low. Advertising should be permitted in public schools because it serves many purposes and can be done in a way that doesn't intrude on learning, but rather enhances learning.

Advertising can help pay for extracurricular activities such as sports and academic clubs that can carry high fees. If advertisers were able to advertise in public schools and pay for extracurricular activities, kids wouldn't have to raise funds and money would not have to come from parents' pockets.
