BBC NEWS | Education | Coca-Cola threat to quit schools: “Coca-Cola warned the education secretary it might withdraw its vending machines network from schools over her ban on ‘junk food’, letters show.
The company told her last November that the proposed ending of fizzy drinks sales would make the business unviable.
It said schools would lose money and pupils would suffer from the removal of such ‘a highly efficient country-wide beverage distribution system’.”
Dear Mr. Cola,
Schools aren’t in it for the money (well, apart from Academies and private schools, and many of the latter are actually in the education business for another reason).
Most students are bright enough to have a drink of water when they are thirsty, so long as water is available. Your ‘threat’ is comical.
