The Missing Piece. A National Teacher Survey on How Social and Emotional Learning Can Empower Children and Transform Schools. By Civic Enterprises.
Ready To Lead. A National Principal Survey on How Social and Emotional Learning Can Prepare Children and Transform Schools by Civic Enterprises
“In too many classrooms and schools across America, children are missing a critical piece of their education. Year after year, and test after test, students and their teachers focus on the cognitive elements of education, while other life skills are often absent from the in-school experience. Social and emotional learning (SEL) — has been underemphasized or altogether forgotten - with serious consequences to children, schools, and communities.”
"Principals across the United States understand how fundamental social and emotional learning (SEL) is to the development of students and their success in and out of school, but they need more guidance, training, and support to make solid and effective school-wide implementation a reality"
