Learning life skills
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Increasingly, misinformation is being spread about how SEL is taught in schools, and there is a real risk that this necessary teaching of life skills can be impacted or even removed from Indiana classrooms. We want to be prepared to defend this learning, so we are joining SEL4IN and other Indiana advocates to fight any attacks to social emotional education in schools.
We have signed onto a letter to be shared with lawmakers about the importance of social emotional learning in schools. To sign onto the letter and learn more about its importance, click on the link below.
