Teacher Selling Ads in Exams
Has anyone heard about the teacher who's selling ads in his test papers?
Yes, it's true. John Farber, a teacher at a suburban San Diego school, says he is doing so to cover the costs of printing the papers, after the school district scaled back his printing budget. Since cutting back on the tests was not an option for Farber, he decided to come up with a creative solution.
Of the seven ads he has run so farone per test or quizfive were inspirational quotes from parents at the school, and two were ads from local businesses connected to parents or someone close, according to this report.
This story makes me wonder how the rest of you out there are coping with district cutbacks and their effects on your classrooms. We'd love to hear your stories, so feel free to share them here.
