This paper summarizes high-quality research findings, which show that intrapersonal and interpersonal MESH skills, such as self-control and social competence, are well-established predictors of success in academics, career, and well-being.

Given the importance of these outcomes and the strength of the existing research, it is time for these competencies to be incorporated effectively into educational policy and practice as complements to existing academic and cognitive goals in order to ensure schooling works to help all students flourish.

Note: At TransformEd, we no longer use the term MESH to represent SEL or whole child development

“We must resist thinking in siloed terms when it comes to social-emotional learning (SEL), academics, and equity. Rather, these elements of our work as educators and partners go hand in hand.”
