Parents' Bill of Rights

- The infiltration of corporate marketing into our public schools is a quiet disease that threatens to turn our institutions of learning into feeding grounds where organizations free of conscience steal precious eyeball time from more worthy endeavors... such as actual learning.

In addition, as corporate foods are pushed over actual foods (processed junk in place of healthy foods) we're growing enormous fat-cell driven future consumers.

Commercial Alert: protecting children and communities from commercialism states the following mission on its website:

to keep the commercial culture within its proper sphere, and to prevent it from exploiting children and subverting the higher values of family, community, environmental integrity and democracy.
Sounds to me like something not only worthy, but vital to the future of our children and our society.

Thanks for the tip, Julie.
