Why is social and emotional learning so valuable for students?


Today’s schools are increasingly multicultural and multilingual, with students from diverse social and economic backgrounds. Educators and community agencies serve students with different motivation for engaging in learning, behaving positively, and performing academically. Social and emotional learning (SEL) provides a foundation for safe and positive learning, and enhances students’ ability to succeed in school, careers, and life. For more information we encourage you to read the series below that Edutopia has written to better understand the necessity for SEL.
