Advertising ... on School Buses?!?

With gas prices soaring, some small public school districts need to make quick cash -- STAT. The solution? Selling ad space on school buses.

Advertising Age reports that some public schools are so strapped for cash, they've taken to selling space on the big yellow bus. But don't worry -- you won't see ads for cigarettes or alcohol. School districts in Cherry Creek, Colo., -- which made $54,000 last year from selling the space -- and Ypsilanti, Colo., say they won't sell space for anything harmful, including junk food. You will, however, see ads for cell phones and the U.S. Army.

What's next -- final exams sponsored by Coca-Cola?

I don’t thing there is anything wrong with this, (keeping in mind the has are G-rating) It will help schools raise cash that don’t have ways to get it. Alot of the schools in country towns find it hard to get money to put in the schools.

Anything is better than that awful fundraising that they make the kids do.

Wow, that’s unbelievable. Advertisements are everywhere now. Interesting that public schools have turned to this to make ends meet. You have to do what you can, I guess…
