New Variant of the “CRT-virus”: “Social-Emotional Learning”

AMAC Exclusive – By Shane Harris

kids

Amid the national backlash over Critical Race Theory, gender theory, and other radical political and social doctrines being peddled in K-12 classrooms, parents are sounding the alarm over a new “variant” of left-wing instructional dogma: “social-emotional learning,” or SEL. While the term sounds innocuous enough, mounting evidence suggests that SEL curriculum is often simply a rebranding of the same dangerous and divisive ideologies that have dominated education headlines in recent months.

If you ask proponents of the concept, they’ll tell you that SEL is all about helping students grow into well-rounded adults who can manage their emotions and interpersonal relationships. Casel, one of the leading organizations that sells SEL programming to schools, defines it as “the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.”

Much of the terminology that advocates of the doctrine use to promote SEL is drawn from the mental health field. The assertion is that when students are confident in themselves and their identities, they perform better in the classroom. As the Washington Post explained in a recent feature piece on SEL, “social-emotional learning seeks to treat children as human beings with feelings, life goals and even traumas, not just students learning to write essays and solve math problems.”

But while those words sound admirable enough, they’re noticeably lacking any specifics about what SEL learning actually looks like in practice. Does traditional education not “treat children as human beings” or help them achieve “personal and collective goals”?

A closer look at the details of SEL programming reveals some striking similarities with CRT and gender theory-inspired lesson plans that are popping up and causing controversy in school districts around the country. Casel boasts that its lessons will teach students “equity” through an approach known as “transformative SEL,” which explicitly promotes “issues of culture, identity, agency, belonging, and engagement” – all progressive buzzwords. Panorama, another company that provides SEL curriculum to nearly 1,500 school districts, encourages students to “adopt an anti-racist framing” and explicitly promotes SEL “as a vehicle for equity.”

School boards, administrators, and activist-minded teachers have clearly picked up on the cue. In Maryland, one “social-emotional learning” survey asked elementary students to answer the question “how do you feel when you see two men kissing?” Another social-emotional learning program used in a Connecticut school district encouraged first graders to question the sex they were assigned at birth. In Wisconsin, a SEL curriculum from Casel explicitly named “social justice” as its main goal and provided “five tips for your first time [having sex]” to 13 and 14-year-old students. A Virginia district’s SEL training urged teachers to “make your ally status known by hanging a rainbow flag, sharing your own pronouns and/or supporting the school’s LGBTQ groups.”

And despite what SEL advocates have promised, students’ academic performance is getting worse, not better, as more and more of their school day is consumed by learning the tenets of progressivism rather than core subjects like reading and math. One teacher and parent of a student at Harper’s Choice Middle School in Columbia, Maryland, for example, reported that her daughter’s math teacher used half of each class to discuss Black Lives Matter and “equity.” As a result, the class skipped an entire unit of algebra because they “didn’t have time.”

Broad patterns in education data from recent years don’t back up claims of improved student performance, either. A comprehensive analysis from the RAND Institute found scant evidence that SEL programming provides any academic, social, or emotional benefits. Even as SEL becomes ubiquitous in thousands of school districts throughout the country, American students continue to lag behind their international peers in key metrics, while their scores on standardized math and reading tests continue to decline

Teachers who aren’t on board with this new woke agenda have often been pressured into silence and even threatened by coworkers and administrators pushing the curriculum. One veteran teacher from Northern Virginia who is a self-described Christian and a conservative spoke with AMAC Newsline and explained how SEL has been installed in schools. As this educator described, the creeping influence of SEL in recent years has moved from “optional” lesson plans sold as making teachers’ lives “easier” to mandatory instruction in gender theory and other left-wing constructs.

In one such instance, students were given an extensive survey that asked middle schoolers questions like “How do you feel about your gender?” and “Where do you consider yourself on the gender spectrum?” Parents weren’t informed about the survey, and teachers weren’t told what the district intended to do with the information. “They are trying to mine the emotions of our children and use that information to manipulate them,” the teacher from Northern Virginia explained. “There is an agenda to grab our kids’ souls.”

Some parents have realized the danger posed by SEL programming and pushed back against its implementation in their school districts. Much like Critical Race Theory and now gender theory, SEL is being exposed as another effort by progressive activists to infiltrate schools under the guise of “improving” education.

Nonetheless, SEL remains big business for the activists and corporate interests that back it. According to a recent study from the Tyton partners, school districts doled out $765 million between November 2019 and April 2021 for SEL programming. Notably, much of this funding came from massive stimulus packages passed by Congress which Democrats promised were to get kids back in classrooms. Instead, it seems that school boards and administrators often used the money to double down on their political indoctrination efforts.

Even after significant victories and clear evidence that parents are fed up with politicized education, it appears that the battle to restore integrity to classroom instruction is far from over. In the coming weeks and months, it may well be that social-emotional learning becomes the next front in the culture war, as parents of all backgrounds and political persuasions continue to organize around efforts to demand greater oversight and hold schools accountable for what they teach.

3 Hebrew children were asked to conform to Babylonian worship . They refused . They got in trouble . They were , by the Grace of God , victorious ! Lord , raise up students to be strong in the Holy Spirit . As for the advocates of SEL and CRT , do not hate or blame them . They can only do what comes naturally to those who have been blinded by the enemy . Fight ? Absolutely ! But on my knees .

The article is playing you. What you read isn’t happening. It’s a gin-up from nefarious elements trying to create conflict in the community and turn the public against a manufactured designated “enemy”

What is happening is just an emotional intelligence focused secularized version of the biblical mandate to train your child up in the ways of the Lord – to weep with those who weep, mourn with those who mourn – bear one another’s burdens – consider not only your own interests, but also the interests of others. It’s to stop the high level of conflict and violence in some schools and high stress rate / conflict from COVID lock down / closed schools

Sorry but my experience in a public school validated the views of this article. My school led the charge of SEL which started with the noble goals you cited but now the district has jumped on the bandwagon pushing LGBQT agendas and white bashing through mandatory SEL training. The last SEL training video I had to endure was led by a mixed race lesbian couple who spent most of the video playing identity politics about their relationship and decrying white supremiscy as the big problem. Heralding their lifestyle was not needed and white bashing gave nothing to improve real SEL in the classroom. And the district paid them handsomely for this worthless training with tax dollars.

>>secularized version of the biblical mandate to train your child up in the ways of the Lord

I do not think the public school teachers received the biblical mandate to train our children. The teachers could not obtain it from God. There are many lines of evidence that this did not happen; the simples is that they made the Biblical mandate secular. If one truly obtained it from God, it would be kept Biblical. Nor could the teachers obtain any sort of Biblical mandates from the Gov’t thanks to the First Amendment. I am certain they did obtain it from us, the parents.

They usurped the right to teach kids what is right and what is wrong the way the public school teachers and the sliver of society they represent understand it. The kids are taught to weep with the boys identifying themselves as girls, but having problems using girls’ bathrooms, but not with the girls who are now practically excluded from the women’s sports. The kids are taught to mourn with the hipsters who were majoring in the theory of urban lesbian dance, but are so upset by the ‘science of global warming’ that cannot think straight, but not with the the contractors loosing money because of the horrendously expensive fuel. Etc, etc.

The major function of SEL and alike is to make the assignment of the roles to various societal forces looking like a real academic discipline, while there is nothing objective or academic in telling that Black Lives Matter, while ‘blue’ not so much. This is not ‘training children up in the ways of the Lord’, but Pavlovian conditioning them in responding to stimuli the way the teachers wish.

This simply has to stop. The American education system needs to be uprooted and the earth salted, and then we can start over. I am ready for America’s teachers to stop with the nonsense and get back to the basics of math, literature, writing, etc. This trendy, toxic propaganda is not in any way authorized by the Constitution and these stealth teachers need to stop exploiting America’s children and have the guts to become the activists they seem to want to be.

They are not entitled to a full-time job and none of this should be supported by the American taxpayer financially or politically. Defeating this insanity starts by starving every single college of education in this country of money and support. These ideologues can be on the left as they choose, but no one owes them a living, and certainly not at the expense of young people.

Large government bureaucracies do very little well, much less efficiently.

Why would schools be any different? Public schools have a decades long record of failure and they keep getting worse. CLOSE all government schools. Let parents CHOOSE what private school their kids will attend. Competition forces improvement.

I work in Howard County Public Schools. The story about the middle school student is not true. As someone who has worked in education for 20 years, SEL is not as it is described here at all. Like much of the hype around CRT, those who complain about it can’t even define what it is. If they could define it, they would see that has never been taught in a K-12 classroom.

There’s so much wrong here, starting from “teaching” empathy to believing teachers have the capacity of being instructional psychologists for 30 kids a class who are all individuals with every different inherent emotional states. And then there’s ALL of us who are out of school for more than a day (especially the older ones of us). Look back and think about your emotional state then and now.
Two things, nobody would be changing my emotional state or level of interest based on instruction, and all of us who have seen are own changes likely attribute every bit of that from experience and not instruction. Every kid would think it lame, and the only ones who would feel success are the delusional teachers who don’t know a suckup is.

As usual, SEL is just another name for CRT and WOKE material that the Democrats and Leftists are trying to use to distort our children and young folk. They will continue to undermine the youth that will eventually lead to undermining the parents and guardians. This should be considered as “TOTAL WAR” against the conservatives.

SEL – Just more dumbing down of American youth, so they won’t be able to handle the real-world situations they will face in adulthood. That is what it all boils down to. The undermining of America’s future by creating even more ignorant and emotionally dysfunctional human beings.

The antidote for the madness is a dose of reality that come with the fear of an extant God of Sinai, Yeshua and 1776 reintroduced to the classroom; an empirically evidence ineffable intellect and power that chose the title God…unwilling to negotiate with the evil that is the false religion of human intellectual arrogance Marxianity or the hundreds of Christian churches incapable of agreeing the meaning of a singular covenant.

Three generations have been raised on the idea of superior alien intellect taking an interest in mankind as exemplified by Close Encounters of the Third kind…when not hunting or eating humans. Not one of the permutations seriously asks how the God most are familiar with would communicate with humanity in a way that removes all doubt as to His identity. That has been answered by the Convergence Matrix which fuses the two human certainties, mathematics and history, with Judaic scripture to write a message across the tablet of time; an offer of peace with nonnegotiable terms…buttressed by easy to read message written in the ink of natural phenomenon. One need only accept the Convergence Matrix is as a parable; teaching how God thinks.

All can read a summary at GSGo ‘Yeshua’s Sword Rising’ but be prepared for a degree of discomfort.

The current state of our education system reminds me of the movie Brazil. The McGuffin in that was a refund check for a man who had been tortured to death. They charged him for his own torture, then found out that they had the wrong man. But making you pay for your own children’s torture is basically how this system operates. “school districts doled out $765 million between November 2019 and April 2021 for SEL programming.”

IMHO: STEM is what needs to be taught. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Throw in some Civics about how the US government SHOULD work, History relating to HOW it has worked to attain the success we have had, and and some Art/Literature to expand their minds, and a few other relative electives. We must have done some things right or there wouldn’t be so many people willing to go through Hell to enter and live in this country as citizens legally, rather than as illegal aliens.

“Equity” and “Equality” are not the same thing. “Equity” levels the playing field and CAPS IT OFF, which usually ends up restricting the educational level to the lowest and slowest learners, where “equality” gives every legal citizen an “equal opportunity” to learn and absorb all he/she is capable of and advance to whatever level his/her mental and physical limit might be, i.e. be all he/she can be, not be held back to some arbitrary lower standard. Every person born in this country was born with this equal opportunity to excel, but the democrat/socialist extremists are trying their best to create only two classes of people, Wealthy Elites who live like Kings, and Working Class People they can control to support them.

It is easier to control smaller groups of people, so we now have “Mass Manipulation Psychosis (that used to be called brainwashing).” Move the masses out of the single-family dwellings in the suburbs and rural areas into government owned high-rise apartment buildings in crowded urban areas (takes fewer guards to control people with less exits), and wait until you see their coming mass killing vaccines in action to reduce the population. Big Pharma and Big Agriculture (keep you well enough to work but sick enough to want their poisons, and reduced nourishment in the GMO foods), Big Financial (to keep you barely wealthy enough to buy what you need), and Big Medical and Big Insurance (to help you stretch your few extra dollars), and Big Professional Sports and Entertainment including Hollywood to keep you distracted, and Happy Pills and free random sex (to keep you calmed down), are no friend of normal people, and TV ads pound home that we are the sickest country in the world (ask your doctor before taking the latest pill for the latest conjured up malady). Now we’re afraid to even catch a virus like the Flu, or CoVid or the common cold because one or two percent of people may die from it due to some comorbidity. Like Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” think about it.

The USA was designed by our Founders to let everyone have an equal opportunity to grow up and excel, or fail, commensurate with their family attitudes, their abilities, and their ambitions; you know, back when we taught our kids sportsmanship and that an occasional failure wasn’t the end of the world or their self esteem, it just made them a better person knowing that there was only one “first prize.”

Get rid of the government education interference, the education unions, and the “woke” teachers. It is the parents that should be responsible for the education of their children, and how they accomplish this is none of the governments business. Unions are basically democratic tools to foster the woke/socialist agenda of those who wish to rule the world under a new/one world order, and that just ain’t the American way got us all the way up to Obama before everything went fully into the sh!tter. If we allow this to happen, the USA will fail and we’ll deserve the Hell that follows! Wake up.

The article is playing you. What you read isn’t happening. It’s a gin-up from nefarious elements trying to create conflict in the community and turn the public against a manufactured designated “enemy”

What is happening is just an emotional intelligence focused secularized version of the biblical mandate to train your child up in the ways of the Lord – to weep with those who weep, mourn with those who mourn – bear one another’s burdens – consider not only your own interests, but also the interests of others. It’s to stop the high level of conflict and violence in some schools and high stress rate / conflict from COVID lock down / closed schools

(Beware of the lying plotting gaslighting evil far right Trump GOP manipulating the public and parent’s fear to gin-up anger and turn them against the invent “enemy”: teachers, librarians, schools, writers, knowledge, discussion)

Lord Jesus save us from the deceptive far right nazi-like evil forces intentionally creating conflict in the community, perpetual liars

Teachers need to focus on the basics, Reading, writing, and Math.
