  • The social and emotional learning (SEL) movement is growing rapidly. Examples of strong SEL can be found in schools and districts nationwide. Because of SEL, schools are becoming places where children feel safe, supported, and excited about learning, teachers are energized, and parents are enthusiastic about their child’s education.

    Want to get involved? You can learn more and engage in the movement in multiple ways.
