The power of social and emotional skills


OECD report “Skills for social progress: The power of social and emotional skills” 
This report presents a synthesis of the OECD empirical work that aims at identifying the types of social and emotional skills that drive children’s future outcomes. It also describes evidence on how policy makers, schools and families facilitate social and emotional skills development through teaching practices, parenting and intervention programmes. This report investigates how policy makers and schools are currently responding to the demands for monitoring and enhancing social and emotional skills. It concludes by questioning whether education stakeholders can do more to better develop and mobilise these skills.
