“The report is in and the conclusion is clear: Children learn best when we treat them as whole people, with social and emotional as well as academic needs. To best prepare our young people to thrive in school and in life, we must help them develop an array of skills.”
A Nation at Hope Report issued January 2019
The Aspen Institute’s National Commission on Social, Emotional and Academic Development was charged with making recommendations for reshaping learning across America to address the whole learner. Their report is the culmination of two years of interviews with more than 200 scientists, youth and parent groups, educators, and policymakers and takes into account two decades of scientific research and a diverse set of real life experiences.
“More than two decades of research across a range of disciplines—psychology, social science, brain science—demonstrate that the social, emotional and cognitive dimensions of learning are deeply linked.”

What is Social Emotional Learning?
Social-emotional learning (SEL) teaches students to identify, express and manage their emotions and to recognize, understand and influence the emotions of others. SEL teaches student to empathize with others, to create healthy relationships, to work toward and achieve goals and to make responsible decisions all while developing resilience, confidence, and well-being.
