I don't know how many people know this but Washington State has a bill that is pending about this very topic and if it passes it will be a huge help to schools and teachers who believe in social emotional learing and how important it is for this generation coming up and the generations to come. What a diffence this type of teaching and learning will do for kids. I think it won't be long if this bill becomes law that we will see the changes in our youths. If anyone can help advocate that would be great. I am trying to find out the status of the bill and I will be going to Lobby Day in Olympia!!
