Failure to address these needs and promote inclusive SEL practices may result in marginalization, reduced social and emotional well-being, and academic disparities among students. To mitigate these risks, governments should provide clear guidelines and support for implementing inclusive SEL practices in educational institutions, ensuring that all students have equitable access to social and emotional learning opportunities.
