Social-Emotional Learning

By Sarah D. Sparks — October 30, 2018 1 min read

U.S. teachers are spending more class time on social-emotional learning—but they think it’s still not enough, according to an annual survey by the education publisher McGraw-Hill.

Based on a national survey of 1,140 teachers nationwide, the report found more than two-thirds of teachers are in schools implementing a social-emotional education plan, and 74 percent say they spend more time on such instruction today than five years ago.

However, only about 1 in 5 teachers reported that they felt fully prepared to teach social-emotional concepts. While 37 percent reported having received in-school professional development, 18 percent received no training at all, and others reported more informal training, such as reading books.
