School District Considers Selling Ads

How do you feel about your school putting up ads in the Cafeteria or even selling the naming rights to school buildings?

The Lodi School District, in California, is seriously considering selling ads to help ease budget woes.  What's really interesting, however, is that parents seem to be receptive to the idea.
Concerns have been raised about whether or not the advertisements would be seen as endorsements or a conflict of interest, but parents like Leanne Hummel didn’t seem to mind. “If (businesses are) willing to help our kids when the state of California can’t; anything is welcome,” she said.

Fellow Lodi parent Danyelle Horch agreed, “We need our teachers. We need our advisors. We need our administrators.”

What choice do schools have any more? With their funding through the ground and teachers being treated as all-but enemies of the state, they aren't exactly overflowing with ways to bring in much-needed money to continue providing the basic and utterly indispensable (And I say this as a homeschooler!)) service they provide. It's time the country took responsibility and stopped treating schools as something that need more 'austerity'. You could take a half a percent of the defence budget and close to double every school's funding. It's disgraceful. :(
