Mom is NOT happy that her daughter receives ADVERTISING from the public school. Wowwww. This mom is so disconnected as to be laughable. The children are a captive audience and we all know it. What do you think all those stupid assemblies are for during the school year?
In our district, they take half a day at every school to show all the KEWL TOYS you could get, kids, if you sell enough crap - I mean, "premium" products - during the fundraiser weeks. Oh, yeah, and the biggest seller gets a limo ride to the local pizza shop. Brought to you by CiCi's Pizza!!
So, not only do they waste half a day on the promotion at the expense of school time, but they are ACTIVELY advertising to the children. The PTA, which is made up of almost all the parents who actually show up to conferences and give a rip about their kids' education at the school, is the one that organizes the event. Thus, the rest of the parents are outvoted. Because the PTA is *your* organization, folks, and if you don't like how they run things... well, you can join up yourself and make change within.
Which I'm NOT going to do because the PTA national is in support of gay rights and blah blah blah. I really wanna homeschool all the children when I think about stuff like this.
