Mom Sues Preschool for Screwing Up Toddler’s Shot at an Ivy League School
Sheesh! It’s a freakin’ preschool for crying out loud! What did she think her toddler was going to learn there? Advanced calculus or something?
Here’s some advice for her: If you want to properly prep your child for life, then make that commitment to homeschool.
Our daughter is only 3 years old, never set foot in a preschool, and yet, she’s already read her first book, “Baby Happy, Baby Sad.” That’s because we take an active role in her education.
Unfortunately, many parents fatuously think they are taking an active role in their child’s education by just dropping them off at school.
And, as the following article demonstrates, when the schools inevitably fail the parents’ expectations, these same parents don’t even think about blaming themselves. Nope. It’s always somebody else’s problem.
Look, I’m not saying that she doesn’t have a valid lawsuit; if the preschool promised that her child would be properly prepped for an entrance exam, then the preschool has not lived up to its half of the contract. But, come on! You can’t just dump your child on someone else and then wash your hands clean of any further responsibility.
I suppose in about 10 years, the parents will be busy filing suit against the preschool for their child’s drug use, too!
Libtardiness in action:
Mom files suit against UES preschool, claims elite school didn’t prep tot for entry exam
By DAREH GREGORIAN – NYP
A miffed Manhattan mom has filed suit against a $19,000-a-year Upper East Side preschool, charging it wasn’t sophisticated enough for her four-year-old and failed to properly prepare the tyke for the city’s elite schools.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Nicole Imprescia says her daughter Lucia was forced to spend time with lesser-minded two- and three-year-olds while the attending York Avenue Preschool instead of focusing on test preparation.
The school told Imprescia it would “prepare her daughter for the ERB, an exam required for admission into nearly all the elite private elementary schools,” but as time went on, “it became obvious that defendant’s promises were a complete fraud,” the suit says.
“Indeed, the school proved not to be a school at all, but just one big playroom,” the suit says.
School owner Michael Branciforte declined immediate comment, except to say Imprescia’s charges were a “first” in their 30 years in business.
Imprescia’s suit seeks class action status on behalf of “all other consumers of preschool services provided by [York] during the years 2009 through 2011,” and cites many news articles on the importance of a preschool education, including one that said, “It is no secret that for many Manhattan parents, getting a child into the Ivy League starts in nursery school.”
“Studies have shown entry into a good nursery school guarantees more income than entry into an average school,” the suit says. “As a result, there is tremendous pressure to choose the right preschool.”
