The National Pulse: Debunking 5 False Claims About “Social Emotional Learning”

by Karen Effrem, MD

The National Commission on Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (SEL) that we have discussed and warned about had a major gathering in Tacoma, Wash., this past November and sent out an email update in early January.

The commission is led by Linda Darling Hammond, the head of CASEL, who was radical terrorist Bill Ayers’ choice to be Secretary of Education in the Obama Administration. Another commission co-chair is former Michigan Governor John Engler, now chairman of the Business Roundtable (BRT), which has long promotedCommon Core, SEL skills development, and treating children as widgets in the labor-supply chain.

Five “takeaways” from the Tacoma gathering were listed in the email and on their website. As we have written in many articles and as is typical of SEL proponents, these contentions are overflowing with contradictions and fallacies. Below is a brief attempt to debunk them:

The National Pulse: Will California Bureaucrats Approve School Textbooks Praising LGBT Agenda?

Dr. Karen Effrem extends a pressing warning to parents!

  • This assault on innocent children, especially young ones — combined with Common Core, social emotional learning and data mining — is just one more reason parents ought to carefully consider how they educate their children. Regardless of the machinations of these various groups and government entities, parents must stand and protect their children against this tyranny of the mind imposed by a radical minority and out-of-control government. We owe them and the nation nothing less.
  • This highly subjective statute is the latest in a long line of California laws that undermine parental rights and authority and wade deeply into identity group politics. This will base the study of history not on achievements, but on membership in some identity group, totally undermining the concept of E pluribus unum – “Out of many, one.”

The National Pulse: More Tech Doesn’t Help Preschoolers — And It May Even Harm Them

by:  Dr. Karen R. Effrem, MD

The corporate data miners that seek to psychologically profile our children in their unproven and dangerous experiments — both for profit and in order to convert education into workforce development for a planned economy — are trying to expand the preschool technology market. And of course, mind-bending social emotional learning (SEL) is at the forefront.   https://thenationalpulse.com/commentary/more-tech-doesnt-help-preschoolers-may-even-harm-them/
