"Ready to Lead: A National Principal Survey on How Social and Emotional Learning Can Prepare Children and Transform Schools"
School leaders see students' social and emotional development as important factors in school success, but in a nationally representative survey of principals, just 35 percent of respondents said their school was fully implementing social-emotional learning into policies and classroom work.
Principals reported several barriers to putting social-emotional learning strategies into place, including a lack of time, inadequate teacher training, and a need for further evidence of its link to academic success.
The survey was administered to 884 public school principals by Civic Enterprises and Hart Associates on behalf of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning.
