Think about what the school climate would feel like if a student punched another during recess while others watched without seeking help, writes Sandra Chafouleas. “Now consider the actions – and inactions – by Trump Jan. 6 as the electoral vote counts occurred at the U.S. Capitol. Those behaviors show a desperate need for social emotional learning.” Read the op-ed in the CT Mirror.
