Putting Ads On School Buses?
By Ellen Reinhardt
A west Georgia school board member is looking into whether to put ads on school buses to raise money. Muscogee County lost $24 million in state funding this year due to budget cuts. The school bus ads would be a first for Georgia.
Muscogee County school board member Mark Cantrell says it is an idea worth considering. He’s looking into whether putting ads on buses is a good way to bring in more money for education. Cantrell says ads are nothing new to schools. “We’ve been doing advertising as far as at baseball fields and football fields and school annuals and Partners in Education for as long as you can imagine schools out there.” he says.
