The Partnerships for Social Emotional Learning Podcast

The Wallace Foundation has released five episodes of a new podcast series, focused on their Partnerships for Social Emotional Learning Initiative (PSELI). Each episode features discussions of early findings and lessons from a RAND Corporation study of the first two years of the initiative. The insights from the partnerships at each site – between school districts and out-of-school time intermediaries, and schools and afterschool programs – come at a time when interest in SEL is outstripping empirical guidance about how to implement these programs and practices.
