In Defense of Subway

There has been a whole lot of flap among homeschoolers about the Subway contest for kids the explicitly excludes homeschooled kids. This is one of those situations where I'm embarrassed to be in the homeschool group.

Listen up, folks: This is America. Any business can have a contest for anyone they want. It can be for people with brown eyes only, for women only, for men only, for kids in a certain age range, or whatever. If Subway wants to offer a contest just for kids that have a school to share the prize with (the prize is $5000 worth of exercise equipment for the winning child's school) then that is their right. For homeschoolers to put up a big fuss, boycott Subway, send a zillion letters, and stomp their feet is, to me, ridiculous.

You can find me at Subway, enjoying a 6 inch turkey sub on honey oat, with pepperjack, tomatoes, carrots, cukes, pickles, and lots of black olives......

Happened by your site when updating our family site. I agree with you on the Subway contest. It's unfortunate that homeschoolers weren't included but ultimately it's their choice.

Nice site. Thanks, for sharing.
