Whole Child / Learning 2025 Programs
"Whole school, whole child, whole community" education is a birth-to-graduation government plan for shaping children's ideas, under the guise of family support.
The program is another attempt by educational institutions to shape, guide and define the acceptable social behaviors desired in children, and to discourage behaviors that go against a globalist, social justice-oriented view of the world.

What is the Whole Child Approach to Education?
ANSWER: The latest buzz phrase in education
"The main idea of a whole child approach to education is to shift the focus of education away from academics and toward other aspects of a child’s well-being. These include aspects for which schools have not traditionally been responsible: mental health, emotional health, and physical health. The whole child approach is supported by the CDC, state governments, teacher unions, the United Nations, and companies that develop school curriculum." - Restoring Ottawa

How "Whole Child Education" Is Promoted
Whole child education is promoted as a positive, all-inclusive program for families: "A whole child education prioritizes the full scope of a child’s developmental needs to ensure that every child reaches their fullest potential. A whole child approach understands that students' education and life outcomes are dependent upon their access to safe and welcoming learning environments and rich learning experiences in and out of school."
Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC)
"The education, public health, and school health sectors have each called for greater alignment that includes, integration and collaboration between education leaders and health sectors to improve each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. Public health and education serve the same children, often in the same settings. The Whole School Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model focuses on the child to align the common goals of both sectors to put into action a whole child approach to education."
Mental Health Care Focus
CDC Linked to Pervasive Curriculum Sweeping Public Schools Nationwide
"The CDC's "Whole Child" approach places its focus on psychological counseling and social services for students and teachers to further the "collaboration between education leaders and health sectors to improve each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development," which is often referred to as social emotional learning (SEL)."
"SEL is advertised as a way to teach students social skills in support of their mental health and emotional wellbeing, but it has been criticized as a way to implement controversial topics like Critical Race Theory and Gender Theory. As a result, it has become a point of contention among parents, teachers and politicians who advocate for a strong academic emphasis at school and against classroom discussions that they feel should be left up to parents' discretion at home."
