Chicago Public Schools is crediting an emphasis on social emotional learning (SEL) using the PATHS® curriculum for reducing bullying and school violence in the city’s schools.
From ABC 7 in Chicago:
Chicago Public Schools is crediting a new program for reducing violent behavior and bullying at some schools.
Teachers emphasize “social and emotional learning” – SEL. And they say it’s making a difference.
For the last two years at least twice a week, students from kindergarten to fifth grade at the Southwest Side grade school also learn paths to being positive by promoting alternative thinking strategies. (PATHS®) The Little Village school is one of 30 CPS schools to be named an exemplary SEL school.
