Tech 20 Session 1: RSS and News Aggregators: Make Your Browser Work for You: December 4, 2008

  1. 1. Teacher Sells Ads On Tests To Cover Printing Costs By Ben Popken , 2:13 PM on Tue Dec 2 2008,   Left to fend for himself after budget cuts, His tests cost over $500 a year to print, but this year he only got $316, one calculus teacher resorted to selling ads on quizzes and tests to cover his printing costs. $10 for quizzes, $20 for tests, and $30 for a final. After a local newspaper featured his story, the offers rolled in and he sold out his semester. Most of the ads are positive messages bought by parents, while others are from local businesses.
