A whole child education demands a strong focus upon and increased accountability for social and emotional learning, it is argued in an important new report in the ASCD Policy Priorities newsletter entitled “A Bright Future with SEL:”
Decades of research argue that students need a balance of academic and social and emotional competencies for success in college, careers, and life.
Policymakers and practitioners are now discussing the best resources, tools, and supports for embedding SEL across pre-K–12 schooling.
The piece rightfully acknowledges that the facts on the ground—the recognition of the importance of social and emotional learning—are not new at all. However, they are coming into much greater prominence in the national conversation because of ESSA, the new federal law which “requires multiple measures for accountability, including at least one nonacademic indicator, generally understood to be an SEL measure, such as student engagement, educator engagement, and school climate and safety.”
