Somehow, we now have new verbiage ( see (a)(3) above ) which includes words and phases like the following:
awareness of self-identify
recognize multiple perspectives
social and cultural context in which they live
We also have directive that none of this "can be taught, discussed, or viewed in isolation" (see (a)(4) above) which translates to SEL everywhere. These vague directives along with new vocabulary outside of the original bill leave the door wide open manipulation. The following bills also laid the groundwork for SEL.
what is the goal of sel?
The goal of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is to shift the attitudes, values, and beliefs of your children. The question we all need to be asking is whose attitudes, values, and beliefs did we go with?

How was positive character taught before the invention of social emotional learning?
Positive reinforcement has been done in the classroom for years. For example, when children read about the holocaust, they learn empathy. When a teacher assigns a project, the child learns reliability and punctuality when he or she turns in the completed assignment on time. Teachers have been displaying and reinforcing self-control, kindness, respect, and courtesy in the classroom for years. It's only been in recent years that this has become a struggle due to lack of support for teacher authority in the classroom and the implementation of discipline disintegration policies such as restorative discipline.
