Marketing is not something that happens at district schools, because they get default assignments. My district, San Francisco Unified, is all choice, so it DOES make sense to do marketing. But that doesn't compute to the school district. It's not part of the educator mindset. And there's no reason whatsoever to market if your schools fill up by default.

Rate yourself? For little kids in school? Sounds like a sham.
