Subway Resturants to Homeschoolers: You Have No Class

May 27, 2008 | By | No Comments

The Dreamer scored in the 93rd percentile in Math for her grade in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I promised her a reward night out — But a daddy-daughter-dinner-date at Subways won’t be happening.

A good deal of her education was in homeschooling where Your Business Blogger(R) worked with her on that topic that counted: Counting. The hard sciences that “girls don’t do well.”

Not good in Math? Not my girls. My expectation was that they would do well in the quantitatives. (Parent and teacher expectations are the biggest variable in the success of students.) My wife is a genius with SPSS and regression analysis . The Dancer and The Diva are rabid readers and love ‘rithmatic — and are bloggers.

The Penta-Posse are outliers on the bell curve of school age young’ums.

So. I promised The Dreamer a night out. But not at Subway. The restaurant is off the good-guy list for two reasons:

1) The company doesn’t care for homeschoolers, and

2) They can’t spell.

Our friend Don Wildmon at the American Family Association sends this along,

Subway tells home schoolers: We will not allow you to participate in our contest. Subway discriminates against home schoolers.

Subway, the sandwich restaurant, wants to hear your child’s story – unless he or she is home schooled.

The national chain’s “Every Sandwich Tells a Story Contest” offers prizes and a chance to be published on the Subway Web site and in Scholastic’s “Parent & Child” magazine but specifically excludes home schoolers. Subway’s website states:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contest is open only to legal residents of the Untied (sic) States who are currently over the age of 18 and have children who attend elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted.

Subway will probably say they excluded home schools because of the main prize ($5,000 worth of athletic equipment to the winning child’s school). But Subway could have given it to a local park, church or school of the winning home schooler’s choice.

Subway’s Web site promotion not only misspells “Untied (sic) States,” but offers the grand prize winner a “Scholastic Gift Bastket (sic) for your home.”

Subway’s leadership clearly does not understand the value of homeschooling. In addition to learning how to spell, we are keeping our kids clear of the public schools’ Family Life Education: Which is, as is commonly known, Sex Ed taught by liberals. When almost 20% of teens have herpes — one would hope that this objective fact might persuade our feminist free-lovers that the condom classes might not be working.

Nope. The public payroll sex trainers are working even harder.

Here’s some of what appears in Family Life Education for grades six through eight,

6.1 The student will learn that there are many health care and safety agencies in the community.

No need to talk with mom or dad, or aunt Sally or uncle Joe. The Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is just around the corner.

6.7 The student will be able to describe the etiology, effects and transmission of the HIV virus.

Clean needles for drug users? Contaminated blood supply? This is more important than spelling or math? The school will not reveal the detail of homosexual sex acts in the spread of the HIV virus. I did see a very nice man who teaches the course, however.

6.8 …[E]valuate …sexuality, and gender stereotyping…

The feminists are determined to get women in combat in the armed services.

7.7 The student will recognize that sexual behaviors are conscious decisions…

The public schools are a bit confused even about their own world view: homosexuality is a conscious decision; a preference — not an orientation. FLE lurched into the truth.

So Subway supports only public schools, can’t spell and doesn’t like homeschoolers.

Dinner at Subway? No sirree — We all are a-going to Chick-fil-a.

Thank you (foot)notes:

Tom Peters once remarked that excellence should permeate an organization, especially for managing the perceptions of the customer. This is why managers make so much money. Airlines, in the consumers’ mind, must understand that if the tray tables are dirty, the airline doesn’t do engine maintenance.

The Army taught if boots were not shined, the soldier couldn’t shoot straight.

If Subway can’t spell, their food will make you [sic].
