Testing Ads

For years, teachers across the U.S. have been dealing with budget cuts. When I was teaching back in the 1990s, I spent at least $250 of my own money every year on supplies for my students. But Tom Farber, a high school teacher in California, has an innovative approach for dealing with this old-school problem: He's selling ad space on his exams to raise money for his classroom. So what do you think of this practice? Would you mind having ads at the bottom of your tests? Would they be a distraction, or could you ignore them? Drop us a line and tell us what you think.
