Example text

What are non-cognitive skills? 8 Indeed, to illustrate the unique difficulty of defining these skills, we note the ongoing debate about how researchers and writers should refer to these skills (the current list includes such terms as behavioral skills, soft skills, personality traits, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, non-cognitive abilities, character, socio-emotional skills, and non-cognitive skills), as well as the sometimes controversial delimitations between cognitive and non-cognitive skills, or between personal traits and learnable non-cognitive skills.

One useful resource is a new guide explaining how states can develop such practices and how policymakers can work to enact and implement them (Restorative Practices Working Group, 2014). 45 E. GARCÍA Finally, there are encouraging examples at both the state and district levels of a shift away from harsh and punitive disciplinary practices and toward these types of supportive measures. California recently became the first state to ban suspensions for “willful defiance” (Siders, 2014). And a number of large school districts—including Baltimore, Boston, New York City, Minneapolis, and Oakland—have adopted restorative policies that steer students toward positive and reinforcing means of addressing problem behaviors (Restorative Practices Working Group, 2014, 10–11).

This first section includes a definition of non-cognitive skills and explores the evidence-based findings on their role in education and adulthood outcomes, and on how they are nurtured. We then extend this discussion by providing a tentative list of skills that are both important for and can be nurtured by schools. The second section examines how education policy could help schools better nurture non-cognitive skills. Contrasting what we know about non-cognitive skills with how policy currently treats them, we contend that non-cognitive skills deserve more attention in the education policy arena.
