Social and Emotional Learning

The short-, medium-, and long- term benefits of social and emotional learning (SEL) are well-researched, with evidence demonstrating that an education that promotes evidence-based SEL yields positive results for students, adults, and school communities. Results of decades of research have found that SEL leads to beneficial outcomes related to academic success, attitudes about self, school, and civic engagement; social behaviors; conduct problems; emotional distress; and academic performance.
