What Teachers Say About SEL – a New Study
What Teachers Say About SEL
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the social and emotional well-being of young people was a growing concern for education leaders and policymakers. But what about the needs of teachers? The RAND Corporation conducted a survey of more than 1,200 K-12 teachers to explore this question. The result is a new report that can help leaders and policymakers better support teachers carrying out social and emotional learning efforts.
The study was undertaken by RAND Education and Labor, a division of the RAND Corporation that conducts research on early childhood through postsecondary education programs, workforce development, and programs and policies affecting workers, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy and decision making. This study was sponsored by The Wallace Foundation, which seeks to support and share effective ideas and practices to improve learning and enrichment opportunities for children.
