The benefits of (SEL) are well-researched, with evidence demonstrating that an education that promotes SEL yields positive results for students, adults, and school communities.
SEL has a powerful combination of evidence and support. Findings from multiple fields show SEL leads to beneficial outcomes related to: social and emotional skills; attitudes about self, school, and civic engagement; social behaviors; conduct problems; emotional distress; and academic performance. Designing a system of education where we start with engaging and understanding kids here first is going to be the key to a health, happy, and successful future going forward!
