LCPS’s $11M Gift to Implement SEL

This may be a little confusing, but we’ll try to make as easy to follow as possible. Have you ever wondered WHY Social Emotional Learning (SEL) has all of the sudden popped up nationwide at the same time? Is it possible that all 14,000 school districts across the country came up with the EXACT SAME idea to implement SEL AND all 14,000 school districts all had the money to do just that? In reality, no BUT in the reality we live in today yes.

“Let’s Go Brandon” made this all possible via the (COVID) American Rescue Plan worth $122B. However, the catch is in order for the school districts to receive their cut of the tax payer money, they would have to agree to and meet CDC guidelines. This places the educational system squarely under the CDC. This is how LCPS to gained access to $11M, with at least 25% of that being used for SEL or SEL supportive staff. Copy and paste this LCPS scenario into 13,999 other school districts and the same thing is happening.
