eat fresh...just don't "educate fresh"

Subway is sponsoring a writing contest for K-6.

The only problem: homeschoolers need not apply.

Contest is open only to legal US residents, over the age of 18 with children in either elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted.

I could see this requirement if they were asking teachers to sign off on Johnny and Jill's essays. But they're not. It would be slightly more difficult to verify age/grade, but not much.

For the hit they'll take on this-- at least from the homeschooling crowd-- this is a surprising misstep.
