Diary - Mac for good
Teachers are constantly trying to keep pupils off unhealthy food and out of fast-food restaurants. But educators in the US have set a dubious example by swapping the classroom for a temporary job at McDonald's.
Teachers from four schools in North Carolina took part in the McTeacher's Night fundraiser earlier this month, where a portion of the night's sales is donated to the schools.
Even the principal of one of the schools rolled up his sleeves to sell Big Macs, fries, McNuggets and milkshakes.
The teachers insist the initiative helps reinforce civic lessons and encourages volunteering as well as raising money.
As for the pupils, they're lovin' it.
