The folks at bus radio must really think people are stupid. They market their station as a way to play nice music on the bus ride to school, play some public service announcements, and have little lessons on how to pass some standardized tests. But who do they think they’re kidding? All they’re doing is finding a way to push ads at kids as they ride to school.
Let’s face it. Kids aren’t going to pay any attention to any kind of lesson being broadcast over the radio on their ride to school. They’re too busy talking, bugging some kids who they think they should bug today, generally goofing around, or listening to their own music. What a crock. But then again, maybe they’ll tune out the ads too.
It’s been removed in a few places, but some schoolboards are stubbornly pushing ahead. Hmmm. Makes me wonder if they have shares in McDonalds.
