If you’ve been in the education field for some time, you’ve probably heard people championing the need for social and emotional learning in schools. And once the pandemic hit, the cries for more SEL—not just for your students, for you and your staff as well—became even louder.
But not everyone sees the value in greater social-emotional supports. Many educators were surprised when some conservatives began speaking out against SEL in schools, connecting it with critical race theory and Marxism. Now, school boards and district leaders are dealing with yet another ideological uproar.
