POLL: Is selling naming rights in Newton schools a good idea?
This morning’s Boston Globe West section featured a story about a proposal to sell the naming rights to various educational properties in Newton schools (e.g. althletic fields, auditoriums, science labs, art studios).
The pragmatic skinflint side of me says “what a great way to raise some money for technology at our overpriced Taj MaHigh”. The more idealistic side of me says “its creepy when the name of virtually anything is for sale to the highest bidder, especially in our schools.
What do you think?
