Nothing appears in a corporate blog by accident and so I am left wondering why Blackboard blog is running a post making the case for advertising in schools. It's OK, says Steve Ostler, because "advertising in schools already happens, and has happened for decades." Things like banner ads on school websites "can generate revenue to fund some of the programs you wouldn’t even dream of being able to provide your students." What would be nicer would be were schools adequately funded through tax reveniue raising funds from these same corporations. Yes, they would have to pay taxes for this to work. But it's better than making today's lesson be about the Chick-fil-a cow.
