“The social emotional learning (SEL) programs wouldn’t be successful without all of the state and federal funding it receives, and with “mental health” being used under the guise of Covid to obtain billions to achieve their goal, the globalists are well on their way to making this global agenda stick. Part 6 covered the private sector funding of this cradle to grave, PreK-Adult, lifelong obedience training that the globalists have cooked up for children, parents, communities, and businesses, to keep everyone in line with a one-mind premise for a blockchain workforce.
This chapter will explore some of the state and federal funding that has poured into this agenda, especially over the past two years.
Hundreds of Billions in Qualifying Federal Funds for SEL Obedience Training
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP), also known as the Covid-19 Stimulus Package to the tune of $1.9 trillion, went into effect on March 11, 2021 to allegedly speed up the recovery from economic and health effects from Covid. A lot of money was allocated toward the education system. This followed after the CARES Act of $2.2 trillion which went into effect on March 27, 2020, and the $2.3 trillion Consolidated Appropriations Act that allotted $900 billion in alleged stimulus relief, signed into law on December 27, 2020. Over $190 billion went toward the education system. They are now trying to figure out how to resurrect or rework the Build Back Better Bill that would include $400 billion in free preschool for all, which is precisely where they want to target children with SEL programs and have already setup the framework across the country, and are implementing it in some preschools. Keeping all of this in mind, lets see how much SEL based programs could potentially siphon off.
SEL Programs Qualify for Federal Funding Under These Programs:
• IDEA—Special Education Grants to States
• Title I, Part A—Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies
• Title I, Part C—Migrant Education
• Title I, Part D—Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk
• Title II, Part II—Supporting Effective Instruction (Teacher Training and Teacher Retention)
• Title IV, Part A—Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grants
• Title VI, Part B, Subpart 1—Small, Rural School Grant Program
• Title VI, Part B, Subpart 2—Rural and Low-Income School Program
• Title VIII—Impact Aid
• McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
• Promoting Student Resilience
American Rescue Plan (ARP) ESSER Funds – $122 Billion
As noted in part 5, Dr. Miguel Cardona, Biden’s new Secretary of Education, has repeatedly encouraged school districts to spend the federal stimulus money from ARP toward students’ social and emotional needs, while also promoting SEL. In an October 2021 press release by the Department of Education, they stated, “Through ARP ESSER alone, state and local education leaders have $122 billion available to them to ensure the mental health, social, emotional and academic needs of our students are met.” ESSER stands for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief.
The following chart was produced by Seattle-based Committee for Children, who is funded in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to improve their Second Step SEL programs, and serves 16.5 million children across all 50 states. CEO Andrea Lovanhill is on a mission to transform the social-emotional wellbeing of 100 million children by 2030. She’s been with the company for over 14 years and was moved into the CEO position in December 2020. The president of the board is Jon Reingold, former vice president of corporate marketing for Microsoft Corporation. The treasurer is Kumar Mehta, who formerly worked at Microsoft for 14 years, is a senior fellow at the USC Annenberg Center for the Digital Future, was CEO of Course5 Intelligence, a data-analytics company, and holds a PhD in pharmaceutical socioeconomics.
Founded by Dr. Debra Boyer and Dr. Jennifer James in 1978 to allegedly help protect children, their offices are located just one half mile from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle. More recently, they have added branches in a half dozen states. They created Second Step SEL programs in 1995 with the approval of CASEL which was founded the year prior (covered in part 2), and went on to receive recognition from the White House in 1998, during the Clinton administration. Their programs are already running in more than 34% of U.S. elementary schools.
In 2021, the Committee for Children put together charts on federal and state funding that qualify for SEL programs to be instituted into schools. This is the breakdown of the ARP ESSER funds:
