Watch this video to learn how schools and districts are bringing students’ social and emotional well-being – and its connection to their education experiences – to the forefront of their practices and planning to ensure educational equity.
This video serves to complement “Educational Equity: Solutions Through Social and Emotional Well-Being,” a series of briefs written by MDRC, its collaborators, and funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Guest will share their advice and experiences on:
- the importance of establishing a district-wide initiative;
- strategies, and the supports needed for these initiatives to succeed;
- opportunities educators can provide to empower students to advance their social and emotional well-being both inside and outside of the school building; and
- how state departments of education can support these efforts by breaking down silos across institutions, especially pertaining to implementing new policies and best practices.
