“The school wellness wheel is a rare and powerful educational framework to come along and revolutionize our school system.”

Christine Ibarra, Associate Superintendent, Educational Services, Antioch Unified School District

“Understanding students as unique learners is fundamental to educational equity. The model proposed by the authors underscores the roles of knowledge, social-emotional wellness, and cultural context in providing a precise and comprehensive picture of the whole learner. This book is especially relevant as we explore the use of AI techniques to operationalize the science of learning, including the development of adaptive learning pathways informed by real-time data, supported by a community of teachers, principals, and parents equipped with actionable insights.”
