    School Marketing

    The other week when I went to pick up my kid from school at the front gates I saw this massive banner with a pic of my child in the forefront.
    My initial reaction was one of pride( and still is), but on reflection I thought they should have asked for our permission to use her pic.
    When schools use pics of children to market their school do you think they should get parental permission or that they have carte blanche as the kids are enrolled?
    What are your thoughts?

    Interesting one, G. I think a courtesy call to you before doing the banner in the first place would have been appropriate in England bit bloody rude otherwise, but then TiT.

    Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it

    At our place it's part of the deal that the parents sign up for, written down on the agreement between school and parent. Give consent for the school to use photos of _____ for purposes of marketing, etc.

    I 'saw you' in Chang Mai once mate.

    The banner was caked in dirt, torn, falling down off a building...
    "If you're not interested in changing where you work (and thus the student population, obviously) then a) your success at applying various and sundry teaching techniques is unlikely to have anything to do with how effective they are in general, and b) your sweeping generalizations about Thai students serve no purpose but to fuel your inertia and your feeling of being an 'insider'. Sadly (for you) few who read your sweeping generalizations will perceive it that way, but hey if it makes you feel good, knock yourself out." -zeusdogg
