The National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development released the results of a two-year long study, funded in part by the Wallace Foundation, examining the importance of social and emotional learning. The report makes key recommendations for improving education outcomes, rooted in the key finding that “social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic and academic development are deeply intertwined in the brain and in behavior."
Researchers recommend that schools utilize community-based partnerships, including arts, music, youth development, and mental health services, to improve outcomes for students.
