George commented on Heart Centered 21st Century Learning

This project provides a tool for measuring the connection between educational activities and the social and emotional learning that paves the way for academic achievement. CEI's initiative provides an educational component that is greatly needed in schools in low-income communities where violence, bullying and home-based stress is higher and parent-child interaction is lower. As an education consultant and co-author of books on educational equity issues and best classroom practices, I support CEI's conclusion that teachers -- with sufficient feedback on the impact of class activities -- can make a difference. In addition, CEI has pilot sign-ups in many states and has the capacity to grow the initiative via its communications and training associations with the National Association of Elementary School Principals.
