Students Weigh In, Part Two (Youth Truth)
In the spring of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic required nearly all of the more than 55 million K-12 students in the United States to stop doing school in the way they had been taught and engage in learning remotely instead. In response to a stark lack of first-hand data about how the pandemic and school closures were affecting students’ lived experiences, this report—the second in a three-part series—explores what students have to say about learning and well-being during COVID-19.
Social and Emotional Learning Investment Priorities
Our investments in this area focus on the following areas:
Building a Field-led Research and Learning Agenda
Support a field-led learning agenda focused on defining the dimensions of quality within integrated SEL and the most critical conditions needed for implementation in schools and districts.
Supporting Exemplar SEL Solution Providers
Continue to support providers in refining their models to be exemplars of integrated SEL, broadly adoptable across a range of school and districts that serve students who are Black, Latino, and/or experiencing poverty.
