The damage the pandemic did to academic and social and emotional well-being is now crystal clear. Students’ math and reading skills have plummeted, erasing years of gains; and many students are struggling to learn how to regulate their emotions, feel empathy for others, and set reachable goals for themselves. At the same time, some school district SEL programs have run up against intense opposition from parents and politicians, who take issue with how SEL is being linked to learning about racism, sexism, and LGBTQ issues.

To properly address these challenges, schools need to do a better job:

  • Communicating with stakeholders about what their SEL programs actually teach,
  • Designing SEL strategies that are tailored to the specific needs of their communities, and
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of those strategies.

Join us for a lively discussion about these topics with educators and experts.
