Where mindfulness education fits in schools

Education Dive – Tara García Mathewson

“Illinois was the first state to require social-emotional learning in all of its schools, setting statewide standards and benchmarks for districts to incorporate at all grade levels. Even now, in a state that went the entire 2015-16 fiscal year without a budget and in a city toeing the line of financial disaster, Chicago Public Schools remains committed to the value of social-emotional learning. And with the help of Amanda Moreno, an assistant professor at the Erikson Institute, 16 schools are taking that commitment a step farther. Moreno is the principal investigator for a multi-year mindfulness-based intervention in Chicago Public Schools, where 16 schools are implementing mindfulness techniques and 14 schools are serving as a control group.”(more)
