It looks like I can start buying my ham subway sandwich on whole wheat again. After Subway took a lot of flack for its earlier decision to exclude homeschoolers from an essay contest, it has promised to make amends:
“Our intention was to provide an opportunity for traditional schools, many of which we know have trouble affording athletic equipment, to win equipment. Our intent was certainly not to exclude homeschooled children from the opportunity to win prizes and benefit from better access to fitness equipment.
To address the inadvertent limitation of our current contest and provide an opportunity for even more kids to improve their fitness, we will soon create an additional contest in which homeschooled students will be encouraged to participate. When the kids win, everyone wins!”
Kudos to Subway.
