The Future of Children: Social and Emotional Learning

A recent issue of The Furture of Children, funded in part by The Wallace Foundation, reviews the state of the evidence for social emotional learning (SEL) and explores a set of policy questions that educators and afterschool leaders are facing. The authors find that teachers and out of school time staff need professional development to help children acquire SEL skills. They also urge a greater focus on outcomes at the teacher and classroom level; a focus on skills appropriate to each grade and age; and that measurement should narrow in focus but be broader in context and depth. Access the journal via The Future of Children website.
