Yes, we should put ads in school and on school buses. This way, businesses can target child audiences who don't watch TV or use computers much. Also, if you put it on the outside, their parents might see it, and businesses could target parents.


Sooo... you basically want to influence kids and parents right?

Advertise smoking, advertise p0rn, or anything that can make people do bad things.

Plus, I think there is already a law prohibiting advertisements in school areas.

What company would even do so? Where would they put the ads?

You want our future children to be smokers, obease, troubled?

You want big companies to make moeny off of our children??

What is wrong with you!

You are trying to kill us all!

You want us to fail!

You want us to become losers!

Why is it a good thing to make big companies hurt us!

You are sick!

You are despicable!

You part of the problem not the soloution!!!!

Debate Round No. 1


You know that we can put bans on inappropriate ads. We can moderate it.


Then why even have it at all?

So we moderate it, "Vote Mrs. Mcarthy PTA president"

Still, you are targeting kids to tell thier parents that you should vote for someone or buy a certain food

Advertisements target guillable people and accepting the manipulation tactics is inherently dirty. I'm surprised such a thing is so supported. It does make some things free, but it's just choosing the lesser of two evils.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm only voting so this debate has a vote on it, but wow. Nothing in this debate was about advertising pornography, smoking, obesity, etc, so CON criticizing all of those was nothing but a straw man fallacy. PRO raised the point that businesses can reach kids who don't spend time on computers/television (because they exist) but never argued why this was a good thing. Since neither side made arguments relating to the topic, my vote is a draw.
