Why Social and Emotional Learning and Employability Skills Should Be Prioritized in Education
CASEL and Committee for Children Host Congressional Briefing on SEL and Employability Skills.
On Wed., Sept. 14, 2016, CASEL Board Chair Tim Shriver, Chief Knowledge Officer Roger Weissberg, and President/CEO Karen Niemi, along with leaders from Committee for Children, IBM, and the Chicago and Austin public schools, discussed the relationship of social and emotional learning and employability skills in a briefing with Congressional leaders.
What the group expressed is what business leaders have been lamenting for too long now. Today’s graduate lack the soft skills to compete in the global job market.
