About Us

We are organizations representing key voices in education – parents, educators, students, community and advocacy organizations, businesses, nonprofits – who share a vision for a high-quality education that includes social and emotional learning.

As a coalition, we believe every student PreK-12th grade deserves high-quality social and emotional learning opportunities, including the development of social and emotional skills, safe and supportive learning environments, caring teachers, and engaging instruction.

As a coalition, we promote the research and evidence that demonstrates that students who engage in social and emotional learning have improved academic performance, social and emotional skills, and well-being.

As a coalition, we represent the will of parents and caregivers who have consistently shown in surveys that they support social and emotional learning.
