Product Placement on Report Cards

"The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood is demanding that McDonald’s immediately stop advertising on children’s report cards. Last week, students in Seminole County, Florida received their report cards in envelopes adorned with Ronald McDonald promising a free Happy Meal to students with good grades, behavior, or attendance. The advertisement appears on report cards envelopes for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The envelopes are used to transport report cards to and from home throughout the school year."

  1. Compared to in-school advertising this seems relatively unintrusive on education, and may actually provide incentive to study.

  2. I think that's disgusting. Poor nutrition is supposedly a contributing reason to so many childhood problems already.
