Heard a rumor that we could soon be moving away from grades to support more social-emotional learning…So the kids who are failing/slipping through the cracks will continue to do so even more…

Call it what you want, Soc/Emo learning is CRT by another name. It is meant for feelings, everyone “succeeds” (it gets passed through) and everyone gets a ribbon…yea!! How about actually teaching of facts, information about the works around us, etc…., taking ownership and responsibility for your learning (students) and parents with making excuses, stand up and be a parent/guide your child and don’t be afraid to EXPECT them to work…Christmas Break!!!


Not correct at all. One of my students who participates very well in SEL discussions is an athlete who competes well in more than one sport. He is from a family that has produced some state champion athletes. It has nothing to do with giving everyone an award, and I have seen nothing approaching CRT.


Social emotional learning is more than feelings or everyone succeeds. SEL is a curriculum based program (there are several). It’s typically taught or discussed in elementary school k-6. The lessons are super short and can be done in a class community centered approach.

Why does it have to either or? We emphasize both in our district.


Seriously. I spend 15 mins a day and it makes a huge difference. It’s not this or that. It’s that and this. Work it into what you’re already doing. But I also don’t understand why secondary teachers ignore the research on how kids learn best and sit them in a desk for 45-90 mins and you stand at the board. All of a sudden that’s “coddling” and silly and unnecessary or “were trying to get them ready for the real world”. As if these kids don’t know about real world problems. Please, some of them have been living in more real of a world than we ever will. In fact, I’d wager to guess that the affluent privileged kids need to learn more about the real world, not the ones that are struggling. IMO SEL is just as important in the upper grades, if not more.


Rumors are not facts. Wait before you spread it farther.


Well said New York ES1- thank you for incorporating this into your classroom community!


Not sure grades help keep kids from slipping through the cracks. Not that removing them is the answer either. I agree with the idea of waiting or asking before spreading rumors.

They want to phase out reporting D’s and F’s in California.
It’s coming.

We fazed out D’s and F’s for awhile and all the D’s became. C- and F became and I for Incomplete.

Once upon a time we had A, B, or Incomplete and 80+% of my HS math students earned I’s and repeated the class the next year. Then they stopped that system as the scheduling would not accommodate the necessary repeaters in order for the students to master the concepts. That was the end of mastery learning and we are now back to traditional grading.
