Advertisements in schools is an issue that is discussed in the United States.
According to some school administrators, using advertisements in schools is a way to raise money for school districts. According to these proponents, schools, especially in less affluent areas, need ways to raise money in order to keep school programs alive. Another argument is that some advertisements may create a positive correlation to a healthy diet or lifestyle products.
According to critics, many advertisements endorse products that are detrimental to children's health, such as unhealthy food, and some people argue that children are more easily drawn to persuasive advertisements than adults. It has also been argued that schools should be an environment where students will not be distracted from their work by advertisements.[according to whom?]
