Is advertising in schools really that bad Did you know that the free book covers we receive during school reach are also received by half of the students across America Thats twenty five million students Did you also know that those book covers advertise They advertise things like Frosted Flakes Skittles and Kelloggs cereal to things like joining the military On top of that we have educational posters in the halls advertising hard work and perseverance but they also advertise Starburst Hersheys chocolate and PowerAid There has been a shift in advertising toward children because of their recently increased spending If advertisers are making so much money on advertising to our youth we should essentially scheme some of that money back to better our educational experience On average children spend about fifteen billion dollars a year in their own money on products eleven billion of that amount is spent on such products as clothes snacks toys and candy Children influence a minimum of one hundred and sixty billion in purchases through their parents The school is a huge place for advertising and if schools were to get people to come in and advertise we would be able to fight things like budget cuts the teachers we love and the technology to make learning more efficient and fun Many advertisers think of students as three in one markets One being consumers themselves Two being influencers of their parents money Third being a future adult consumer So for some people they think advertising is a bad thing in schools Why is the question Im asking is it bad that we want teachers or that we want cheaper proms class trips or something as simple as a tent to continue the tradition of graduation outdoors Advertising isnt a big deal people are conscious of their own decisions they arent going to be brain washed by posters in the hall or coke machines that have the front label
