Committee for Children (CFC), a global nonprofit working to advance the safety and well-being of children through social-emotional learning (SEL), recently released new polling data that show overwhelming support for social-emotional learning among parents across the country.
“The process of developing social-emotional skills begins at home but continues at school where kids are spending a substantial amount of their time. Schools have been teaching these skills for generations, helping to prepare students to thrive in the real world,” said Andrea Lovanhill, Chief Executive Officer at Committee for Children.
Conducted by the Benenson Strategy Group (BSG), the online survey interviewed 1,200 parents of school-aged children across the country. Using census data and other demographic data, the sample was weighted by geography, race, gender, age, education, and 2020 vote to ensure it was proportionally representative of parents nationwide.
