Reports in Swedish newspapers this week are saying that several schools have been using McDonald's (for possibly as long as four years) branded worksheets to teach fifth grade students English. Apparently, the worksheets contain passages that read like thinly veiled "advertising copy" according to one parent. The passage includes a brief history of the first McDonald's established in London.
The text also reportedly advises students to substitute carrots for French fries to eat with their burgers, and encourages them to snack on Big Macs while watching football.
