CERU Annual Report: Trends in Schoolhouse Commercialism

Trends in Schoolhouse Commercialism.  Since 1998 CERU has published an annual report on schoolhouse commercializing trends.  These reports document the nature and scope of commercializing activities in schools, analyze the impact of and response to those activities, and assess their policy implications.  CERU research has resulted in two books: School Commercialism:  From Democratic Ideal to Market Commodity (by Alex Molnar, 2005) and Sold Out: How Marketing in School Threatens Children’s Well-Being and Undermines Their Education (by Alex Molnar and Faith Boninger, 2015).
