To the Editor: School event taught wrong lesson

In the evening of March 21, Toth Elementary's Arts Festival started with my daughter's kindergarten class singing three songs.
In their grand finale, The Farmer in the Dell, a (male) farmer took a wife by the hand, and he led her around the room. In the same way, the wife took a child, and a cat took a mouse. Unfortunately, this kind of hierarchical family structure leaves women with child-like power in their relationships with men, and in too many families, this imbalance in power results in women being battered like a mouse up against a cat. In so many of our communities' families, girls learn that they should be dominated; empowerment is the lesson they should learn at school.
