Here is the introduction to the article…

“Talk about delayed gratification. Rather than a two-minute wait for a marshmallow, we try to convince kids that 10 years from now they’ll need a particular skill to get a job. That may work for some, but it’s a pretty weak incentive.

The importance of social emotional learning (SEL) — the ability to manage yourself, to collaborate with others and make good decisions — is widely recognized as key to success in life. But it’s not just about what students are preparing for it’s who they are becoming as people. It’s about being a better learner, team member, contributor, and friend tomorrow than you were today.”
