RWJF Issue Brief: Applying an Equity Lens to Social, Emotional, and Academic Development
July 20, 2018 | Emily Taylor
A new issue brief from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, “Applying an Equity Lens to Social, Emotional, and Academic Development,” addresses the need for grounding Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs in a larger context of equity and justice efforts within public education. The brief outlines the barriers that may prevent students of color and other and other marginalized youth from developing social and emotional competencies, and several initiatives that can help. The authors also include recommendations for research, policy and practice.
