Authors of a new meta-analysis study published in Child Development, looked at results of 82 different school-based social and emotional learning programs involving more than 97,000 students from kindergarten to middle school in the U.S., Europe and the U.K. They found positive outcomes compared to peers who did not participate in the programs, including higher high school and college graduation rates and lower incidence of drug use, arrest and mental health diagnoses.
