Most educators agree that social and emotional skills are essential for both children and adults, and much research proves these skills help set the foundation for success in school and in life.
But we all know the world of district budgets and the need to demonstrate the effectiveness of educational programming. District leaders need to know that quality, well-implemented social and emotional learning (SEL) programs are worth the cost and effort and have a high return on investment (ROI).
Luckily, it’s easy to make the case for why SEL is a worthwhile investment. We put together this guide to outline all the benefits of quality, well-implemented SEL programs, including:
- Increases students’ academic achievement
- Effectively supports teachers’ well-being, instruction, and retention
- Builds critical social and emotional competencies in students and adults
- Offers a 13% ROI
- And more!
There are so many reasons to invest in SEL programming. We hope you find this guide helpful as you plan your SEL program.
