2020-21 advertising policy on The Voxitatis Blog

-

Our advertising policy was last updated in July 2013, and it’s time we updated it.

First and foremost, the Voxitatis Research Foundation does not accept or display sponsored content or ads on any of our pages, including The Voxitatis Blog, whether operated on schoolsdo.org, maryland-k12.org, or any of our unnamed servers that carry supplemental content and can be accessed only by their IP address. Our reasons for this decision are explained here.

content is king

Since our initial founding in 2002, Voxitatis has never accepted money for advertising space on its website or in any printed matter. This general policy, intended both to maintain our independence (Consumer Reports) and to provide children with as commercial-free a childhood as our resources will allow (Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood) will not change.

We don’t oppose per se the advertising policies on sites like Facebook or the small amount of profile sharing with businesses offered by companies like Edmodo. This can make users aware of resources that might help them. There’s a good place for commerce online, but our site is different.

Voxitatis may engage in delivery of content by subscription, from sites such as Substack, but our resources, databases, and reports are free and free of advertising. They always were, and they always will be.
