These are the three readings: a) “There's Nothing Wrong With Advertising To Children”
b) “The Case for the Private Sector in School-Reform” c) “Allison Arling-Giorgi: For Gen Y, Brands Are Our Peers”
All the provided/suggested readings are in this Google Doc that you can view using your NPS Google account.
As a comment to this post, in light of what you've read, what questions are on your mind? What does someone in the debate group need to address? How protective should parents and schools be about children's exposure to marketing messages? Provide a list of questions, and these can be the same as the ones you create in preparation for the debate.
