Why Social-Emotional Learning Matters

According to recent research studies, programs incorporating Social-Emotional Learning make students feel like their school provides a supportive, encouraging environment. These students are more likely to make academic improvements and get better scores in standardized tests, while also improving behavior & attitudes toward school and prevent substance abuse.
