Are NJ Schools Overrun with Advertisements?

Schools nationwide are feeling the pinch and many districts are using advertising as a way to control costs.  While the idea hasn’t taken off completely in New Jersey, we are seeing more local businesses putting their names on football field scoreboards and in yearbooks across the state.

“By and large, you haven’t seen schools in New Jersey being overrun with advertising the way people feared it might happen,” said Mike Yaple, spokesman with the New Jersey School Boards Association.  “It depends on the district.  Some communities don’t want any connection between their schools and advertising.  In other communities, people believe their schools should do anything possible to control costs.”

Just last month, the state set the ground rules for school bus advertising.  “School buses can post ads, but they can’t be about gambling, alcohol, tobacco or violence.”
