Reason 340: Because Common Core Is A Done Deal. Next? SEL

One of the most fascinating things to watch in the political arena is the battles between those who think as individuals according to principles and those who simply think what they’re supposed to think. Conservatives are more of a group of groups pulling against each other, fighting with each other, and undermining each other. That’s just the nature of the beast. People who are not subject to group think are almost impossible to coalesce into monolithic force. But liberals are a different monster altogether. They are without principle and their thinking was programmed with pre-thought thoughts. Yes, they will call themselves free thinkers, that’s what they’ve been programmed to do. I just want someone to explain to me how free thinker’s thoughts are so aligned with the masses of people who think just like them.

So conservatives fight old battles over and over again and lose while the liberal slave masters are already on to the next big thing. Common core is done. If you send your child to government schools, they will be common-cored.  But there is already another battle on the horizon that conservatives will lose. It’s the latest fad called SEL. (Social Emotional Learning) Someone with some pull had a brainstorm. And now your children will be the guinea pigs.  Here is the article:

The Latest Big Education Fad, Social-Emotional Learning, Is As Bad As It Sounds

Just a little taste of the article:

CASEL is the big gorilla in the zoo of social-emotional learning, or SEL. Having proved so adept at (or perhaps having given up on) teaching students English, math, science, and history, state progressive-education establishments are joining CASEL to explore more esoteric pursuits. Better to diminish academic content knowledge and push SEL: “self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.”

Of course there is a way to win this for you. You don’t have to send your child into this brainwashing situation. You can keep them home and give them a decent education. If there’s one thing  one ought to have figured out in a society gone insane, it’s that doing what everyone else is doing might not only be a bad idea, it might be the cause of the insanity.
