The ads on the bus go buy, buy, buy!

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: June 23 ar­ti­cle “Eanes looks at school bus ads.”

I am dis­gusted by the re­cent vote of Eanes In­de­pen­dent School District trustees to ne­go­ti­ate a con­tract for ad­ver­tis­ing on school buses. I am not naive to the re­al­i­ties of di­min­ish­ing fi­nan­cial re­sources for our schools, but this idea is over the edge. I un­der­stand that com­mer­cial­ism is be­com­ing a larger part of our so­ci­ety ev­ery­day, but there has to be some limit.

As an Eanes ISD res­i­dent and par­ent, I in­tend to boy­cott any en­tity that ad­ver­tises on our buses. I en­cour­age oth­ers to do the same. Please con­tact me if you want to or­ga­nize an ef­fort against this travesty.
