School Board: No advertisements on buses
from Reno Gazette Journal
The Washoe County School Board in Nevada quickly dismissed any consideration of slapping advertisements onto the sides of its 322 school buses. The idea has been floating around in the Washoe County School District for years. District officials heavily researched the idea in 2010 as a revenue generator for schools suffering through the recession. A media company said it could generate $800,000 for the district in the first four years. State law explicitly allows bus advertisements, as long as they don't promote violence, drugs, firearms, any religious organization or political cause. Revenues must be used "only to purchase textbooks and laboratory equipment and to pay for field trips," according to Nevada law.
