Socialization

Socialization

The first time I stumbled across the header pic, I immediately loved it, and loved the reaction of several friends I passed it onto who, being pro-homeschoolers, sometimes missed that critical second word just long enough to start out on how "socialization wasn't that important and... wait." - and then laugh.

On a more serious note, though, Peter Grant points us to this article he wrote at the Mad Genius Club:

As the Tennessee Department of Education prepares to roll out new academic standards in math, English, social studies and science, it’s turning attention to creating the state’s first-ever set of standards in a completely new arena — social and emotional learning.

Tennessee will spend the next year on the task as one of eight states chosen to draft new standards focused on students’ emotional well-being and mental health in grades K-12.

That means setting benchmarks for what students should know or be able to do in each grade when it comes to skills such as decision-making, self-awareness, social awareness, self-control, and establishing and maintaining healthy relationships.

The idea is that setting grade-appropriate standards for social and emotional learning can help teachers help their students thrive both in and out of the classroom.

Almost sounds like a good thing. Teach kids how to behave themselves. Then take a careful moment to consider who is writing this.

The same people who want your kid to have an abortion and get birth control without your parents consent or knowledge, everyone's really gay since gender is fluid, and isn't it grand to sexualize yourself as a young teen drag queen? (clap, or else).

The same people who think a 2-inch long toy "gun" fit for toy soldiers deserves an expulsion.

Peter does ask at the end, well if the parents are doing it, who will? Under the current regime, no-one, at least not until we have more stay at home moms again. But that particular battle has been fought tooth and nail by the death cultists since at least the 70's, as Black Pilled pointed out in his overview of Stepford Wives:

I'd never seen the movie, ever, but am familiar enough with what people who admire it say about it to know that he's likely not far off. And if the described scene where she thinks her friend has gone nuts because her house is clean sounds a bit farfetched and exaggerated, I can't say, but I know I've heard more than a few women spout "I'm not his maid" about requests to keep things more orderly, even when it was about messes they themselves had made.
