National School Climate Center
September 8, 2011
The NSCC is an important leader and innovator in the fields of school climate, social emotional learning, bully prevention, and civic engagement. At a time when federal educational policy focuses too much on testing, and has disconnected academics from social development, NSCC has been an articulate champion and resource for reconnecting the whole child, supporting teachers, and helping to promote sustainable democratic education. I have enjoyed my time with them, most recently as a partner on projects, and I recommend them to others interested in theory, practice and evaluation. Check out their website for great resources and important background readings.
