Socio-Emotional Learning (SEL) Is Anti-White, Anti-Christian, and Anti-American Indoctrination

North Carolina Department of instruction is proudly pushing dangerous hatred into all 115 school districts under the guise of "Equity."

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) announced in June 2020 that it would be partnering with The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to “meet the SEL [social emotional learning] needs of students and staff.”

The DPI’s marketed their SEL program by saying it “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.”

NC's version of SEL is deceptively named, however. Upon closer inspection of how the program works, the “learning” part of SEL is partly on the part of the students and partially on the part of the school state who are using questionnaires to peel copious amounts of private information out of school-aged children, all in the name of tailoring their classroom experience.

According to CASEL's program literatrue, the program contains critical race theory teachings such as avoiding "White racial entitlement and dominance," prioritizes developing student and parental "critical social awareness," and cites problems with teachers being "middle-class White women."

"Transformative SEL"

The surveys being used for data collection often administered without parents’ knowledge or consent. North Carolina is using a variation know as "transformative SEL" which necessitates schools, and the state, violate the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA),which states that:

  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school.

  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student with several notable exceptions, including state and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.

Johnston County Schools Survey

While it’s tempting to believe that this program could be innocuous in the hands of the right schools, there’s no getting around that the data collected is being used by the the state of North Carolina, and possibly by the Federal government is being kept and is likely much more invasive than what parents assume.

These surveys are allowing governmental bodies to get the kind of look into the lives of families that is unethical, if not altogether illegal and potentially damaging to families. It’s also pointing children’s minds clearly into the path of a much more racist way of thinking.

This training, according to the NCDPI's budget, will now include Pre-K/Kindergarten level in the 2021/2022 school year.

It’s also hard to ignore what the schools clearly think they’ll accomplish with SEL since when they introduced the program, Michelle Accardi, the Director of Policy and Partnerships for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards said that the program would

“help shape” the society of schools.

While the face of the program is troubling enough, the underbelly is even more disturbing. SEL is being implemented by surveys are, in at least one North Carolina District being paid for by The Oak Foundation, a Switzerland based nonprofit with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

EFA's Sloan Rachmuth delved heavily into the monetary ties between NC schools and the Oak foundation in her recently released expose that has prompted parents to ask several questions, including why a foreign group would have an interest in this information being gathered, and whether they have any access to it once its been aggregated.

The Oak Foundation for some reason, the has chosen NC schools to be part of a pilot program for their "Learning Differences Programme"in which they can "shape more just and equitable communities" by "invest[ing] in not-for-profit organisations that improve education for all students, particularly those with learning differences who experience further marginalisation due to racism and poverty."

Multiple reports show the Oak Foundation seeming to use NC school children as their test subjects in testing they call their push to "Build knowledge and understanding of what works best."

Finding what "works best" is a worthy goal, especially as it pertains to our kids. The question North Carolina parents have to ask themselves is whether they want that information flowing straight to a group like the Oak Foundation, or if they'd rather keep their family's information away from those connected to the CCP.
