Mr. Harvey will discuss:
  • The origins of SEL (Social and Emotional Learning)
  • The Semantic Deceptions of those promoting SEL
  • SEL's foundations in unsettled science
  • DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) - What you are led to see vs what you get
  • SEL's race to power
  • How SEL uses data collection to prioritize emotional conformity over educational content
  • What are SEL's 'competencies'?
  • Intersectionality firmly links SEL with Social Justice Activism and Critical Theory
  • How SEL is incompatible with justice
  • Red Flags for which to watch
  • Dangerous distinctions without a meaningful difference: SEL, DEI, CRT, CT
  • Understanding what promoters of SEL would prefer you to remain ignorant of
  • How to semantically strike back by reframing SEL's 'lived experiences' with reality
