Recently, @Gerrit posted the question Did an American kindergarten teach children the alphabet using corporate logos? Everything seems to be in order with regards to the question, with @Gerrit providing a picture and links to both Reddit and Facebook where the picture was received, with many users expressing shock and outrage. The photo was also found on KnowYourMemes as well, showing that the image has gained some traction on the internet as a whole.
Upon doing some research, I was able to track the source of the image back to a post on Reddit from 9 months ago. Within the thread, there are no attempts to actually fact check the validity of the image, and the OP refuses to provide any more evidence for the validity of the photos, only commenting 3 times, making another unsubstantiated claim and talking about the photo.
Per the same person that shared these (which are legit) they also sell advertising space on school issued folders. Five hundred bucks gets your logo stickered real big to the front and assigned to the kid at some point.
X is Xbox lol, I cropped it to fit the two rows in
They didn't want to dox themselves, but they said it was public (note: this was in regards another user asking what school this photo was from)
I see one of three different possibilities for this question.
- Leave the question unanswered until the question can be definitively answered "YES" or "NO", and with my comments regarding the lack of research avenues left on the question itself.
- Close the question for lacking notability since the original source of the image is an anonymous user on Reddit
- Post an answer outlining the source of the photo and the inability to track down the source, with an answer of "Inconclusive" or something similar.
What is the best course of action here?
