Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) is a co-sponsor of a new legislative act that allows US schools to fund social and emotional learning (SEL) programming. He states “These programs are scientifically proven to help students increase skills in problem-solving, conflict resolution, responsible decision-making and relationship building—these are the skills that will build the foundation for students to better perform academically and throughout their lives."
Teaching mindfulness and empathy are social skills that can enhance academic learning and self regulation. There is a movement brewing. Please support this legislation and all efforts to bring these calming practices to our communities.
