Greetings PENT Cadre, SELPA Directors, and supporters,

I am forwarding you this link. I think it highlights the emerging field of teaching SEL curriculum to our children. Please be sure to follow the links that are embedded within the article.

In a closely watched experiment, students in California are being tested on their social-emotional skills; the results will be used to rate schools.

"None of us is a skilled as all of us!"

My best,

Diana Browning Wright
PENT Director
