“SEL is critical to adulthood outcomes and well-being, and integral to learning”

Subbu Parameswaran, CEO, Learning Curve Foundation

Why do we exist?

Just as a plant needs a combination of air, water, soil and sunlight to flourish, a child needs a combination of physical, intellectual, social and emotional development in order to achieve meaningful adulthood and life outcomes.

If the goal of education is to prepare students to lead relevant, meaningful and gainfully employed lives, then our education system is not prepared. Home to 250 million children and 1.5 million schools, India’s education system is built around cognitive outcomes, which is a bubble waiting to burst as the student enters adulthood and the workforce, where one is expected to have the ability to self-regulate, adapt, build relationships, handle conflicts and collaborate.

We believe that SEL is the missing element in schools, and should not be left to life  - SEL should be part of every child’s education - particularly for children from low income backgrounds, social-emotional development holds the key to equitable adulthood outcomes

What we do

  • We bring a whole school approach to SEL - engaging teachers, school administrators and parents to make SEL real for the child
  • We provide age-relevant and progressive student SEL curriculum, and teacher learning material with a focus on teacher well-being and development
  • Using a multi-stage approach to SEL, we build adoption, capacity and process over a period of 3-5 years with structured support systems for the school
  • We generate evidence and measure SEL through a comprehensive evaluation framework for teachers, schools and students
