Bright & Early: Badvertising Edition

Good morning, Nashville. As they say, desperate times call for desperate measures. With Metro schools now looking at being about $16 million in the hole, they’re taking a look at some creative ways to bring in the dough–the latest of which is selling advertising space on Metro school buses. It’s already legal to sell black and white bus ads in Tennessee, but they think colored ads would entice more businesses to actually buy them. A lot of folks seem to support at least looking into it, but some parents feel like it would be tacky… though not as tacky, we think, as a $16 million deficit.
