A report released this week by a federal School Safety Committee included an imitative launched by a woman whose son was killed at Sandy Hook School. Scarlett Lewis presented the same information recently to the Connecticut legislature's School Safety Working Group.  The Jesse Lewis Chose Love Movement talks about the impact of social, emotional learning.   The organization was founded to keep kids healthy and safe.  She says anxiety is at an all-time high and wants to teach students, educators and parents how to take action to combat that.  Among the recommendations in a report to the legislature after the shooting, was to have schools foster healthy child development.  Lewis says social, emotional learning can help accomplish that through several lessons.  She says the lessons have positively impacted over 1.3 million kids and is filling a need.
