Education Quotes

Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life. ~Henry L. Doherty

Subway discrimination against homeschooling families

Subway sandwich shops have a cute little contest.

Just adorable, except for that fact that they discriminate against some children - including homeschooled children.

In this contest, they start you off with a few options for story starters. Then the parent & child are supposed to finish the story.

This is how I finished the story --

The Race to Red Onion Ranch
Everyone gathered in the center of town for the start of the race except...

the homeschooled children. They were discriminated against and denied access to the race.

Even though their parents paid taxes like everyone else, and even though the homeschooled children volunteered many hours for human rights groups and community groups, they were outcasts.

The parents of the homeschooled children felt very sad for their children.

To cheer them up, they took them to Subway, which was the favorite fast food restaurant for the family, and where one homeschooling family of 9 frequently spent more than $50 for a meal.

There was a sign on the door, however, stating very clearly, "Homeschooling families not welcome here."

The family then realized that they would never spend another dime at any Subway restaurant again.

During this time of crises around the world - China, Burma, and Ethiopia - children can make a difference.
