VIDEO: Indiana Teacher Claims She Was Fired for Exposing Left-Wing ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Scheme
An Indiana teacher released a viral video this week giving riveting testimony about her dismissal from a public school because of her activism efforts against left-wing educational schemes.
“My name is Jennifer, and I am a public school teacher who is also the founder of Purple for Parents Indiana,” she said. “I started Purple for Parents here to expose the truth about Red for Ed, the NEA and the radical agenda behind it.”
She believes that the National Education Association (NEA) is involved in a scheme to not only elect Democrats, but also indoctrinate and brainwash young minds through a sneaky overhaul of the curriculum in public schools.
“One of these hot topic issues is a push to change school culture through social emotional learning programs,” she explained.
“My school is currently in the third year of its SEL program called ‘Leader in Me.’ It is used to educate what they call the whole child through language manipulation, role playing, and influence of morals and values. As a teacher and a parent, I find this program to be very disturbing because these things should be taught by parents,” she said.
Jennifer said she was fired last Friday from her school as a result of exposing this agenda, based on a Facebook post she made the previous Monday exposing the agenda. Jennifer said that the school claimed she was “making them look bad” and being “untruthful” with her post.
“I want everyone to know that everything that I said was the truth. I believe parents should be aware of what’s going on, and my concern is truly because I care about children and parental rights,” she said.
Jennifer’s main concern with the SEL program is that it is being administered without parental consent, and parents have no ability to opt their children out.
“After being fired for speaking the truth, I immediately realized I can no longer trust the school to care fairly for my daughter, and I immediately unenrolled her,” she said. “I am deeply worried about what is going on in the public schools, and the measures that they will take to silence the truth.”
Jennifer had to choke back tears in the video when recalling how she was fired without being able to say goodbye to the students she cared for so much.
“I am an extremely hard-worker who is always kind and professional. It hurts me that I had to leave without saying goodbye to my students, and I have no idea what reason they will give for my absence,” she said.
Jennifer urged people to share her video to help raise awareness of what is going on in the school system, as leftists become more bold in their exploitation of the youth.

Educational experts refer to SEL programs as “government-sponsored personality manipulation” and note how they cannot be tested for effectiveness due to their total subjectivity.
While Education Secretary Betsy Devos claims that Common Core is dead, the underlying principles behind the standards remain firmly in place. Exposing the agenda can have serious consequences.
