Harmful Effects of Social Emotional Learning: What Parents Need to Know

Mission America alert

Have you wondered about this nebulous school framework called "social emotional learning"? It's often not a separate program or lesson, but can show up in any subject area, in homeroom surveys and in a wealth of other intrusive ways. 

Do you want schools to become the de facto parents and psychologists for your children, gathering detailed information (and judgments) that follow them throughout their school lives? 

Do you want a ready-made vehicle for radical re-shaping of your child's moral views, political views, and faith?

This is how SEL works. Parents need to become informed and watch for it in your schools. It's often justified by behavioral problems, lowering stress, etc. but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Protect Ohio Children has published a great flyer called the "Harmful Elements of Social Emotional Learning." You can access that flyer by going HERE.
