“I don’t think we would be gaining very much from this at all.”

From Jim Metrock:  Last year I posted an article about Skoollive being rejected by Plattsmouth, Nebraska public schools.  I found this longer article about the vote.  A quote by board member Karen Parsons may be helpful to other school board members across the country.

“I seriously don’t see how this would help us,” Karen Parsons, board member, said. “I don’t think we would be gaining very much from this at all.”

I want to make it easy for any school board member or school administrator or parent to find out about Skoollive.  Often the idea of putting Skoollive’s electronic billboards in schools comes up out of the blue and people only hear Skoollive’s sales pitch.

Skoollive exists mainly to bring advertising into schools.
