“So you know, we’re trying to make that transition to you know, ‘no we’re not doing ‘Social-Emotional-Learning, it’s all mental health.”
Accuracy in Media published a video of Idaho teachers bragging about teaching Critical Race Theory despite the state banning the curriculum. From National File:
“So that dumb new law doesn’t mess with you guys?” an undercover journalist can be heard asking Nampa, Idaho teacher Cindy Dion. “Social-Emotional-Learning, you can’t say that here anymore. It’s ‘mental health’” Dion replied. “So you know it’s just our ‘mental health curriculum’” she continued, explaining the workaround. “So you know, we’re trying to make that transition to you know, ‘no we’re not doing ‘Social-Emotional-Learning, it’s all mental health,” Dion mockingly said with a smirk.
“It’s just all the different words you have to use and ‘of course we don’t do CRT, we don’t’ so yeah… We’re just learning how to worm around all those weird things that are out there.”
Melissa Langan, the chief academic officer for Caldwell School District in Idaho, was caught on video explaining how the district had intentionally renamed social-emotional learning to “behavior adaptations.”
“It’s kind of a bummer that we have to do that,” Langan said. “But at the same time, it was kind of brilliant … because they don’t care about [behavior adaptions], even though it’s the same thing,” Langan unknowingly told Accuracy In Media.
BREAKING: Idaho banned critical race theory, but schools are teaching it anyway.
"Changed the label, same stuff."
"Social-emotional learning, We can't say that here anymore. It's mental health."
