SCHOOLS ARE FAILING STUDENTS
Regarding the front page SEL training article in Monday’s paper – that is social emotional training, SEL. I once again wish to ask this question. What is the purpose of educating students? Is it scaring them? Making them throw up?
Once again I ask you the citizens who pay for this training, is this what you want? I once again want you to consider that our school systems need an overhaul. No wonder students do so poorly on the tests measuring their skill level when they are not prepared for the materials expected on those tests.
Emotional training should not use up valuable educational time, especially using nasty tasting jelly beans that cause you to vomit.
