What is Social Emotional Learning in our schools?
Social Emotional Learning curriculum uses specific phrases and words to sound harmless for our children. However, SEL is used to mold your child's thoughts, values, and beliefs apart from your parental control.
How should I love those around me?
What is my purpose?
What values are good or bad ?
Who am I ?
Forsyth Co uses Casel for SEL
Whoever determines the answers to these questions, shapes how the child thinks and what the child believes...about himself and the world around him.... which ultimately determines who the child becomes.

"SEL can address issues such as privilege, power, race, social justice, and community, and help build a new system of schooling that serves all children."

FORSYTH COUNTY uses CASEL curriculum for Social Emotional Learning. Here is information straight from their website:
" Inequities based on race, ethnicity, class, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other factors are deeply ingrained in the vast majority of systems and impact student and adult social, emotional, and academic learning. While SEL alone will not solve longstanding and deep-seated inequities in the education system, it can create the conditions needed for individuals and schools to examine and interrupt inequitable policies and practices, create more inclusive learning environments, and reveal and nurture the interests and assets of all individuals."
