SEL and “Equity Creep”

Who knew that social-emotional learning (SEL) was controversial?

This paragraph (part of a larger essay) is from the Fordham Institute.

“A standard feature of the education landscape are the hundreds—even thousands—of consultants, assessment providers, and curriculum developers acting as camp followers, soaking up the dollars attached to the fads and groupthink. At present, that means adding “equity” to every PowerPoint and sales pitch. Proponents of SEL might be snake-oil hucksters and their customers sold dubious practices, but they’re not architects of an occult plot.”
