Attendees to tonight’s class on Social Emotion Learning, if you can take a look at this page before the class as we will discuss:   https://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Student-Supports/Ohios-Whole-Child-Framework

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is just one cog in the Whole Child Framework(1) wheel–which is part of the Ohio Department of Education. There has been a highly coordinated effort to turn schools into places that conduct behavior therapy on children rather than instruct them in academics. Academics have been purposely diluted by the injection of SEL programs. Values, attitudes and beliefs inculcated by the ‘experts’ displace the family and community values, attitudes and beliefs. 

Come learn the myriad players and routes to control Ohio children and the children’s social connections from Kirsten Hill, current member of the State Board of Education. Kirsten was a member of the Integrated Students Support Committee and the State Board at the time Ohio’s Social and Emotional Learning ‘Standards’ were approved in mid-2019.  

 

Chris Monzel is a Republican candidate in the primary for Ohio House District #28.  Chris has a long history of serving the public including his 8 year stay as a Hamilton County Commissioner ending in 2018, including when he served as President of the Commission.  Also, Chris also served as a Council Member of the Cincinnati City Council. Come Early at 6:30 to say hello to Chris!
