The 74: Featured Interview with CASEL CEO Karen Niemi
Karen reflects on how to maintain quality in SEL as the movement matures. Emphasizing adult SEL and assessment are key.
CASEL has tracked social-emotional learning in every state, and our resources are downloaded in 186 countries across the globe. The movement is actually widespread and doesn’t seem to be limited to certain geographic locations or certain types of schools… I see a groundswell of commonality in the interest in helping kids gain the academic, social, and emotional skills they need to be successful in their lives.
CASEL continues to develop a series of briefs based on the experience of schools and districts in our Collaborating Districts Initiative. The briefs cover cutting-edge topics of interest to anyone engaged in SEL implementation.
