Although the vast majority of education stakeholders agree SEL is important, it has remained on the sidelines while education leaders have instead focused on academics alone—as opposed to the development of the whole child (Giancarlo Brotto, The Future of Education Depends on Social Emotional Learning: Here’s Why, edsurge.com).
How do we foster the development of the whole child?
How might a person understand overall wellbeing?
WHY ISN’T THIS HAPPENING?
We don't know how
We don’t know what we don’t know
It’s a lot of work
It takes time
We don’t know the value of it
Blocked (emotionally, mentally)
Fear (of change, of self, of losing control)
