School board to put advertisements in Seminole County schools
Parents have mixed opinions about a new deal to bring advertising inside Seminole County public schools.
WFTV learned that nothing seems to be off limits with the company that the school district hired.
Big banners in the cafeteria to a company’s logo on student lunch tables are just some examples of where corporations can advertise, according to Education Funding Partners, the firm Seminole County schools is hiring to put ads in front of students.
“They’re getting it on their smartphones, they’re getting it on TV, they’re getting it everywhere!,” said Seminole County parent Pete Alwinson.
