Against Marketing in U.S. Public Schools
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis provides and ethical discussion of the place of marketing in U.S. public schools. This problem is especially interesting in a time where schools are having their budgets vastly cut. The importance of education is lauded as the reason to allow marketing, along with it being used as a teaching tool, among other reasons. The opponents of in-school marketing are discussed, such as health and psychological problems and the social functions of school. I conclude that marketing in U.S. public schools should no longer be allowed, but that it is only realistic to eliminate it gradually.
