Adverse childhood experiences, neglect, poverty, divorce, and other childhood stresses have radically changed school culture in the past ten years. In his most recent book, Paul Tough gives educators and care-givers practical, research-based ideas and suggestions for strengthening the non-cognitive skills in students like persistence and grit, relationship building, and developing a growth mindset to support social emotional learning (SEL). The pressures of standardized testing without an infrastructure of a healthy, nurturing school climate will only further frustrate students. Teachers and care-givers need to develop strategies of developing environments where students can build healthy attachments to adults and peers.
