Suing your child’s preschool

Strange but true (like many of the other news reports heard on Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me):

A Manhattan mom is suing a $19,000-a-year preschool, claiming it jeopardized her daughter’s chances of getting into an elite private school….

and the elite private school would be “the first step to the Ivy League.” According to the Huffington Post (and confirmed elsewhere), Nicole Imprescia, mother of four-year-old Lucia, claims that her daughter’s preschool “proved not to be a school at all, but just one big playroom.”

Oh my. What can I say? Sue your preschool because you’re not going to get into Harvard? Oh my.
