At the very least they should have to follow the same procedures as other daycares. And frankly I don't think any business really needs to advertise in a public school. Daycares aren't community service organizations; they are for-profit organizations. But I realize that is just my opinion.
However, yes, I really think they should be excluded from advertising in a public school. I think that it gives the impression that the school is endorsing the religion. I also think that if there were a day care that taught atheism (not just a secular daycare but one that actually taught that is the way to go) that it should not be allowed to advertise in a public school either.
you're making a lot of assumptions. do you have evidence that they aren't following the same procedures as others?
advertising for profit organisations in american public schools is not a new thing. at least in this case the school is probably not getting paid to allow it to happen. but blocking certain groups on the basis of religion or ideology would be discrimination.
True enough. I certainly am not an expert on the subject. And often the "experts" disagree on laws that seem clear cut.
I was hoping that there had been a prior case that someone knew of to make it more clear.
As long as they allow atheist daycare/ atheist camp or Muslim or Jewish daycare or camps literature to be distributed then it is legal. My youngest got vacation bible school mailers mailed to our home. I called the church and they stated that they got the name and address from her school district. The district rep stated that by law they have to provide the information when asked. They can and do charge a fee for it.
I was hoping to test them and see if they would provide it for an Atheist organization mailing. Maybe Camp Quest. Perhaps that is something you should do as well. Test them.
