Leaked Letter From School Counselor On Social Emotional Learning Opens Up Can Of Worms On State Of Education

“Social-Emotional Learning” is a buzzword that is being thrown around in discussion about the failings of the American schools, but what is it all about, and why does it scare some parents so much? 

As kids return to school in the Fall of 2021 parents around the country are more skeptical of schools than ever before, and the excitement over a new year of learning is unfortunately diminished for many American children.

What was once a hopeful American institution of learning, has now been transformed into an oftentimes secretive chamber of regulations and teaching tactics that parents do not really understand.

Oftentimes parents feel like they don’t have any advocates or anyone to talk to, so many chat groups and groups have sprung up around the United States full of frustrated parents.

In one such chat room on social media, a father from Colorado posted a letter from his son’s guidance counselor, and he showed his specific concerns in highlighter:

“I am your student’s counselor. I am here to support them both academically and with any social-emotional issues, they may be going through,” the letter reads.

The parent obviously is frightened enough to remain anonymous and has crossed out the identifying information on the letter. I explored with the parent his feelings about the letter, and why it was alarming to him.

The parent told me that he was concerned about the use of pronouns and the tone of the letter in connection his son’s guidance at school to something called Social Emotional Learning, which he didn’t know about.

The pronouns were concerning for the father because he felt as if he had not given his consent to have his child in a learning environment where confusion about sexuality was being focused on and actually pushed, and he was worried that Social Emotional Learning gave someone who was gender-confused an edge to manipulate his child into adopting foreign concepts that would be harmful to the child’s education.

These are legit concerns, and the problem is that parents do not have an advocate for their concerns currently with our school system designed in a way to cut the parents out of the loop and give authority to school officials – who sometimes use professional jargon to discuss professional development issues that are foreign to parents.

So what is Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), and is it possible that it could benefit a student?

The answer is that it depends on what you want your child to learn in school.

SEL is a teaching style of communication that is housed in the “Equity” movement which is funded by the Department of Education to be distributed to local schools by way of teacher training, public speakers, continuing education, professional development, social justice activism and curriculum development.

The ideas that makeup SEL are based upon a decades-long belief in something called “emotional intelligence” which many proponents believe is a superior way of measuring a person’s skills, wisdom and potential in the workplace.

Theirs is a focus on feelings over facts.

Some people agree and some people disagree with the school’s focus on prioritizing feelings over facts, and there is much discussion to have about that- however, one thing is very clear, many parents feel as if the education system they thought they understood, has been replaced, and the changes are being forced on them- and they do not give their consent to the changes.

We have a problem of the “consent of the governed”.

Let’s dive in:

Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Also known as “emotional intelligence,” SEL has five core concepts; you can read more about each one below and discover ways to incorporate them into academic and unstructured class time:

Relationship Skills
Self-Management
Self-Awareness
Responsible Decision-Making
Social Awareness

Obviously, these topics are concerning to parents who want the schools to focus on building skills like reading, writing, Math, learning a trade.

The answer to whether or not the focus on feelings over facts, is dangerous, is in the idea that if the adult using the communication tactics to push the focus has an agenda, it is dangerous for children because it is not only removing the opportunity to teach a marketable skill, it is pushing a personal agenda.

Sort of like pushing personal pronouns.

If a parent wants their children to learn job kills, it is dangerous. Not many people get jobs for understanding some people’s use of personal pronouns.

And therein lies the real issues of our day. We have a divided country, and one side is not being heard or respected.

Why don’t you pedal your scam elsewhere?

Remember Trump’s Education Secretary, Betsy Devos? …..Few do! She resigned very early this year.

She wasted 4 years not fighting leftist and islamic indoctrination in K-12 schools and colleges receiving federal funds.

She was worthless and complicit by, OMISSION OF ACTION.

An omission is a failure to act, which generally attracts different legal consequences from positive conduct. In the criminal law, an omission will constitute an ‘actus reus’ and give rise to liability only when the law imposes a duty to act and the defendant is in breach of that duty.

It’s called “brainwashing”. Parents, DO NOT send your children to public schools.

Everyone who can should homeschool their children. I often pass a billboard which says 1 in 6 children in the US suffers from hunger. 1 out of 5 children in the US graduate from high school functionally illiterate meaning they cannot read and write well enough to have a job or do day to day functions. The education problem in this country is greater than the hunger problem. It is time something be done about this besides having touchy feely sessions.

What I see is the simple fact we have lost an ENTIRE generation of children.

A couple months ago, the state of Oregon officially abandoned class materials and test scores because they are supposedly part of a “racist system of meritocracy.” they described it as a way to improve educational opportunities for students who are “people of color” LGBTQ, etc etc.

Teachers in South Carolina were being trained on this last week. A friend of mine teaches kindergarten and was pretty disgusted by it.

Equality- no students gets help. No student gets to learn. A student who truly has a natural inclination toward math cannot help the one who isn’t because they are equal. Thus if the math struggler who has natural tendency toward grammar can not help the grammar struggler. Why? Because they are all equally neglected.

This promotes equal abuse of all children both educationally, mentally, and emotionally. The idea of teaching that there is no difference of people biologically, or that there is a difference in numbers, colors…. Heck, why go to school? .

I am a retired public school teacher. So many parents are home schooling their children because the system has become so woke. Parents don’t want their children indoctrinated, they want them educated. So sad, and I’m so glad, I’m retired.

Read the communist manifesto read into congress in the 1960’s they had 45 goals to take America over from within. #15 Capture one for both of the political parties.
#17 Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teacher’s unions.
#21 Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
#26 Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “Normal, natural and healthy”
#31 Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture”
# 36 Infiltrate and gain control of MORE unions
#37 Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

Children go to school to learn skills that will help them grow and become useful members of society. A construction firm will hire the engineer who can build bridges and buildings, not the one who can make LGBTQ folks happy or someone who cannot tell the difference between males and females. The real world turns on facts, not on feelings. ‘Woke’ idiots need to grow up and live in the real world.

But it works SO WELL to create useless, servile, & controllable “bots” for the NWO elites…
