UPDATE: Kutztown rejected PETA's offer, saying it thought it inappropriate to subject children to such advertising. The Reading Eagle has more. The idea of splashing ads across students lockers may be controversial but it's nothing new. A school district pulled in $200k from the Mall of America aquarium ad campaign last year.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has a deal it thinks a Berks County school district can't refuse: Cash for promo placement on student lockers.
PETA, the national animal rights group known best for its attention-grabbing anti-fur campaigns, is asking the Kutztown School District to allow it to post ads promoting alternatives to animal dissection on student lockers.
If the superintendent gives the go-ahead it would be the first school district in the nation to do so, reports the Reading Eagle.
