“Many of our students come to us without the social-emotional skills they need to become productive adults in a world that is increasingly becoming smaller and flatter. Since the skills can be taught, I feel it is imperative that we as educators do more to teach self-management, relationship building, cooperation, and conflict resolution.”
Meria Joel Carstarphen, EdD, Superintendent, Atlanta Public Schools
