COLUMBUS, OHIO (April 9, 2013) - Today, Saperstein Associates, an Ohio-based research firm, released a new white paper summarizing research on the benefits of social-emotional learning (SEL) presented during the 2013 Beyond Bullying Summit at Teachers College, Columbia University. The white paper—Beyond Bullying: Proactive Approaches for Successful Students and Safe Schools—also features top district leaders’ real-world examples of how incorporating SEL skills, such as empathy and conflict resolution, into the curriculum positively impacts students and schools.
“This white paper is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in learning how SEL really makes a difference in the lives of our students,” said Dr. Sonya Whitaker, superintendent for Fairmont School District 89, in Lockport, Illinois, and moderator at the Beyond Bullying Summit. “It is imperative that we teach SEL skills, which help students develop a sense of security and well-being. This is no less important than preparing them for academic success.”
