Suri Cruise, her new school, and parent reactions.

The hoopla surrounding Suri Cruise’s enrollment in Avenues, the World School moves the insanity that recently has been the hallmark of the New York City independent school scene to a whole new level. Parents who choose their child’s school based on celebrity attendance clearly have lost sight of some key points related to the education of their children.

What about Suri’s enrollment makes Avenues a better school than it was two months ago?

Is Suri teaching the other children?

Is she attracting better teachers to the school or adding educational resources?

If I were a parent of a child in Suri’s class I would actually be concerned that my child may get less attention because people were fawning all over Suri.

New York City parents who lose sight of the fact that schooling is about the children, not about their cocktail party conversation, are, at the very least, wasting their tuition dollars. Choosing the right school for your child is often one of the most important decisions a parent can make.
