Millions of students have not caught up academically after remote learning, and Uncommon Schools is making up for that. Fairmount Elementary Principal, Tameka Royal, uses pep rallies to increase enthusiasm for learning with her students. “Always stand up and always speak out. There is no substitute for in-person learning,” says Royal. The school is utilizing federal aid to hire and train teachers to offer support to students when it comes to their social-emotional well-being. Uncommon’s dedication to social-emotional learning is already resulting in academic improvements. Check out NBC’s Chris Glorioso’s report for more information.
