Social Emotional Learning (SEL) has spread throughout our country. Its soft language is appealing and sounds like something everyone should be in favor of, BUT don’t be fooled. SEL is a trojan horse for Critical Race Theory. It teaches divisive ideologies, trains children to see color not character, and fundamentally changes performance-based academics to deliver forced equity (equal outcomes).
All states follow an SEL curriculum to some extent. The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is the self-described “trusted source for knowledge about high-quality, evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL)” and provides SEL curriculum to many states. SEL was redefined by CASEL in December 2020, to Transformative SEL which promotes educational equity, social justice and aims to create student activist.
Transformative SEL is a Weapon for Social Justice it emphasizes student “identities” and “marginalization,” “equity,” “just communities,” and the “collective” rather than the individual. These same principles are the foundation of Critical Race Theory.
SEL was introduced over 25 years ago claiming noble intentions of exemplifying good character and addressing bullying and sexual harassment, missions everyone can support. This program has revealed itself as yet another manipulative tool being used to indoctrinate our children. Learn more about SEL:
