Cut the Jargon: What We Actually Want for All Students

Although Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Day has passed, the topic remains of interest year-round. The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) hosted a webinar called Cut the Jargon: What We Actually Want for All Students. The webinar commemorated SEL Day and educated attendees about SEL. One of the takeaways from the webinar is that SEL can happen inside and outside of the classroom. Schools are not the primary place where SEL happens. Instead, SEL can take place during extracurricular sports or community service activities. SEL also must be built on trust and relationships and driven by interest.

Fordham Institute has published a report explaining differing ways that parents of K–12 children view SEL and its implementation in schools.
