The suspension of perspective and sanity wealthy, fretting parents (or even expecting parents) exhibit when they’re trying to wedge their children into exclusive preschools is a well-documented and risible phenomenon. Don’t parents politicking for coveted preschool spots for their barely-cognizant offspring realize the absurdity of their relentless search for the perfect preschool? Have they no shame? Wouldn’t they rather spend the summer, you know, not thinking at all about school instead of cold-calling the haughty admissions directors of glorified playpens?
