School districts across Pennsylvania are dealing with shrinking budgets and big deficits. Still, one Philadelphia city councilwoman’s proposal to allow advertisements on city public school property is stirring up a lot of controversy.
Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown argues that the ads would be a steady source of revenue without having to raise taxes. This year, the Philadelphia school district has a deficit of more than $300 million.
Critics of the proposal say kids are already bombarded with advertising and don’t need to see more, while they’re at school.
