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 because she had to slum with younger kids.
Nicole Imprescia yanked 4-year-old Lucia from the York Avenue Preschool last fall, angry the tyke was stuck learning about shapes and colors with tots half her age - when she should have been prepping for a standardized test....
Imprescia's court papers suggest the school may have damaged Lucia's chances of getting into a top college, citing an article that identifies preschools as the first step to "the Ivy League."
The suit reportedly seeks a refund and class-action status.
If a judge says the mom is due a tuition refund, I wonder if under the same theory taxpayers would be due refunds of the portions of their taxes that go to fund dysfunctional public schools that also may damage students' chances of getting into Ivy League colleges.
