How to Replace Vending Machine Fundraising

So got to thinking:
  • In 2005 WA state had 1,013,189 enrolled in public school (OSPI report card).
  • According to IATP's report on vending machine fundraising (see post), " School beverage contracts generate an average of $18 per student per year for schools and/or school districts."
  • Therefore, to get rid of the temptation to make money by selling our kid's soda pop at school is to increase the state education budget by roughly $18 million.
  • Could it really be that easy? Doubt it, but it's a doable number to propose.
