The primary goal of education is to prepare children to become competent and socially well–adjusted citizens. Life skills, as defined in terms of Thinking, Emotional and Social Skills play an important role in achieving the above stated goal.
To thrive in the 21st century, students need more than traditional academic learning. They must be adept at collaboration, communication and problem-solving, which are some of the skills developed through Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)
65% of children entering grade school will ultimately work in jobs that don’t exist today, putting creativity, initiative and adaptability at a premium.
SEL will prepare today’s students for the evolving workplace, with consequent benefits for individuals, businesses, the economy and society. SEL confers academic success as well.
A meta-analysis of 213 studies showed that students who received SEL instructions had achieved scores that averaged 11 percentile points higher than those who did not.
