Key takeaways included:
- To prepare students to participate in democracy, educators must empower them to take charge of their own learning.
- SEL is bipartisan. It’s not a red-state or blue-state issue, but a commonsense approach to education and youth development.
- Reflecting on past education initiatives that failed to produce hoped-for gains, panelists noted that success of the SEL movement will depend upon buy-in from those “on the ground” doing the work: teachers, school staff, parents, and community partners.
