Disassociate ILE from the Indian Land Elementary Warrior Beauty Pageant

We live in a society where 6 year olds have eating disorders and distorted body image issues. This kind of event feeds directly into these types of insecurities and the vapid idea that beauty is paramount to a person's value and self-worth. We should not be teaching young children, who are in the process of developing their own social mores, memes and heirarchies that it is acceptable to judge people based on their looks. This event contradicts the values we teach out children and should NOT be sanctioned by the school.

      Because I have three children of my own and I would not enroll them in something that judges on their looks teaching them at a early age that looks is the only thing that matters.

      Public schools should not be encouraging competition over perceived beauty. If anything they should be teaching children to look deeper. That any parent or administrator thought this was an idea that should be considered for even a moment--let alone realized--is SHAMEFUL.

      I'm not even a parent, and I find this appalling. No school, even by proxy, should encourage such a shallow 7 worthless activity. If kids need to learn about competition, let it be through a test of skill, no shallow appeal.
