(Newser) – A Manhattan mom is suing a preschool for scotching her 4-year-old daughter's chances of getting into an Ivy League university. The mother complains that the $19,000-a-year York Avenue Preschool failed to prepare the toddler for a test used for admission at top private elementary schools and sometimes put her in the same group as children ages 2 or 3 who were merely learning about colors and shapes, the New York Daily News reports. "Indeed, the school proved not to be a school at all, but just one big playroom," the lawsuit grumbles.
