Equity-Oriented Social & Emotional Learning: A Conversation with School Leaders & Service Providers (Catalyst:Ed)
In late July of 2021, Catalyst:Ed convened 25 educational leaders and service providers with deep expertise in SEL and/or Family Engagement from their network to engage in a two-day action sprint. This report, and accompanying synopsis, capture direct excerpts from their discourse and summarizes the primary themes touched on in these discussions.
In this report, you will find:
- how insights from our conversations with leaders primarily fit two broad threads: 1. The imperative that schools address SEL 2. How to address SEL through an equity lens
- a summary of the top five barriers to prioritizing SEL they discussed, including direct excerpts from their discussions.
- promising practices to prioritize social emotional learning with video clips centering on examples of how some of these leaders engage in the practices and resources to kick start your own practice.
