You need to learn the difference between red and Crimson early

I'm generally not the kind of guy who has grudges against the rich, seeing as how few poor people tend to hire you, but this is not the sort of thing that most people are going to be very sympathetic about in this economy:
A New York woman's lawsuit against her daughter's preschool claims teachers did not do enough to prepare the girl for an Ivy League future.
Um, I'm not a parent, but even if I was, I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have shelled out the nineteen grand that this woman spent on a fucking preschool that would prepare her kid to get into an Ivy League school.

The article goes on to talk about how the preschool supposedly promised to prepare this woman's small child for an entrance exam for some of New York's most "elite private elementary schools."

Where she'll learn, what, exactly, compared to the kids in this obviously rich neighborhood who end up in some *gasp* private school that isn't posh enough? Or in *horror of horrors* the local public schools that are full of slightly less-rich or middle class kids whose parents just send them to whatever school and expect them to learn something?
