RAND Education and Labor conducts rigorous, objective research to help decisionmakers and practitioners find solutions to education and labor market challenges. 

RAND researchers present results from a spring 2019 survey of a nationally representative sample of kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) public school teachers about their approaches to supporting students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) and the factors that might influence those approaches. The authors explore teachers’ SEL practices, including both classroom- and school-level approaches. The authors also examine teachers’ beliefs about SEL, their emotional well-being, professional development related to SEL, school-level supports for SEL, and district and state SEL standards.
