It makes sense to me that schools should teach social and emotional skills since the research shows that emotional intelligence is the predictor for future success rather an IQ. (For more on that, read Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Coleman). The question is: why aren’t more schools teaching it? Oh yeah, I remember now. It’s not on the test. But I think this article makes a great case for why it should be on the test!
