Woke in the WELS: More Goodness: Against SEL in the Christian School

An excellent article from Dr. Allen and Mrs. Julie Quist on the dangers of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Dr. Quist is a former professor at Bethany Lutheran College (ELS, in fellowship with WELS) This is extremely timely (for me) as the next Woke in the WELS will be dealing with SEL.

Social and Emotional Learning and the Christian School – Christian News (christiannewsmissouri.com)

They rightly point out the Marxist basis for SEL and the connections to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how it feeds into a global citizenship.

The punchline (from the full .pdf paper linked in the Christian News article):

"Is it possible to have a Christian form of Social and Emotional Learning? No. Christian schools are being misled. SEL and Christianity are opposites. All schools that are using SEL are being misled. Cultural Marxists are skilled in manipulation. Cultural Marxists believe there is no morality, no right or wrong, no Ten Commandments. Don’t expect them to tell the truth about anything—including SEL."

Read it - both the CN article and linked PDF - and check back next Sunday for SEL in the WELS...
