Various international researchers have shown in recent years that social and emotional education improves academic performance and student well-being.

These improvements have significant proven consequences related to some of the more serious and difficult problems to be resolved in our education system: they prevent drug use; improve cohabitation and reduce levels of violence; they also improve teacher-student relationships and diminish child and adolescent depression-related symptoms.
A correlation was also found between school climate and academic results. When relationships and communication between students and between teachers and students have improved, academic performance has too.
