One unconventional strategy: they're playing the Justin Bieber song "Baby" during breaks between classes and at lunch time until the campus raises $500. They hope students will donate to stop the school from paying the song.
KING-TV reports they have raised more than $330. Some students were quickly pleading for an end. Said student Zack Chamberlain, "My head is about to explode right now."
Student government president Connor Stakelin concedes that "for some of them it's incentive to donate because they don't want to hear it anymore."
Other students don’t mind the Bieber music. It’s the repetition that’s getting to them.
“We’re done listening to that song over and over again. It’s getting very bad. I just want to go home,” said Jasmine Moore, a student.
KING says the idea to support Crossover International Academy came from Tenino Elementary School Principal Dave Ford.
Tenino is about 60 miles south of Seattle.
Critical thinking challenge: If Justin Bieber is bad, what song would be worse? Or would song would you not mind hearing over and over again?
