Last year, a team of KSOE faculty researchers conducted a study at De Marillac Academy, a Lasallian middle school in San Francisco, to identify graduates’ non-cognitive skills and attributes, enabling them to succeed in high school and beyond at a greater rate than their public school peers. This grant allows them to continue their research, leading to a book publication and other possible avenues for publication.
