McDonald’s chairman Andrew J McKenna, why not just DO YOUR FAIR SHARE and fund schools adequately so that teachers don’t have to pay for school supplies out of their own pockets? Do you really expect teachers to appreciate this latest effort to pretend that you support public schools, while you sit on the board of New Schools for Chicago, which promotes school closings and replacement with privatized charter schools? When from 2004 until 2008 McDonald’s Corporation and Ronald McDonald House Charities donated over a million dollars to the Renaissance Schools Fund which funded Mayor Daley’s dismantling of over 60 neighborhood schools?
But no, apparently you would rather further humiliate teachers by putting them in your little paper hat and behind your greasy counter.

CHICAGO AREA TEACHERS TO WORK AT McDONALD’S® ON McTEACHER’s NIGHTS
Chicago Area McDonald’s Host Unique Fundraising Events to Raise Funds for Local Schools
CHICAGO, IL (November 12, 2012) – Chicago area teachers and school administrators will be working at local McDonald’s restaurant during a week-long fundraising initiative to help supplement education budgets at local schools. Beginning November 12th through November 16th, participating McDonald’s restaurants in Chicago and Northwest Indiana will donate a percentage of sales made between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. to local schools. Residents are encouraged to visit one of the neighborhood McDonald’s restaurants listed below to support schools in their area.
“McDonald’s strives to be a good neighbor by hosting programs that support students and educators in our local communities” said Janet Karavites, McDonald’s Owner Operator. “McTeacher’s Nights are great fundraising opportunities that allow teachers and students to work together.”
The Chicago area McTeacher’s Night activities are part of a weeklong Educator Initiative taking place November 12-16th, and spanning across McDonald’s Restaurants in three states – Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. McDonald’s restaurants across the region are joining together to support their local schools and communities.
As part of the McTeacher’s Night program, teachers are able to work the registers at McDonald’s, provide tours of the kitchen, decorate the restaurant with school colors, and invite school mascots to attend the event. The program represents all grades in public, private and parochial schools.
McDonald’s has a rich heritage of being a good community partner, and a long-standing commitment to supporting education. McTeacher’s Nights provide communities a chance to support their local schools while they enjoy a great tasting, quality meal at McDonald’s.
