Well, NBC could be "New Brookline Classrooms" as a pro-new school 

But only the HS Xylophone dept could use FOX as "Fund Our Xylophones"

Also, we could have a pro-increase teacher initiative "Increase Our 
(k)Nowledge" (ION).

And the anti-tax folks could have CW/Brookline "Cut Waste"....

And on cable, we could have TBS "Together (for) Brookline Schools"

Need I continue............(acronyms are us)
