A new report from the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development, funded in part by the Wallace Foundation, explores social, emotional, and academic development in young people. Recognizing that academic learning and social and emotional learning are intertwined, the report makes key reccommendations about creating visions for student success, changing institutions to teach students social, emotional, and cognitive skills, and aligning resources across partnerships with schools, families, and communities.
Researchers also reccommend bringing assets of community organizations, including arts and music, into schools to support the development of the whole child.
