McGraw Hill Studies Teachers' and Parents' Knowledge of Social and Emotional Learning

McGraw Hill released the results of a survey of teachers, administrators, and parents—the “2021 Social and Emotional Learning Report”—which shows that most educators’ schools are implementing social and emotional learning (SEL) plans. Educator awareness of SEL has increased from 83% in 2018 to 94% in this survey, while parental knowledge and advocacy for it is at a high, with 87% “believing it is important in helping their children navigate today’s world.” In addition, 81% of parents think that SEL is not emphasized as much as it should be, and 80% think it is helpful for students learning online. More than 84% of teachers think SEL has become more important since the start of the pandemic, and more than 95% of educators believe the benefits of SEL include fewer behavioral problems, better grades, and less emotional distress.

The press release notes that “SEL is defined as the process through which young people and adults acquire and apply knowledge, skills and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.”

For more information, read the press release.
