It is being increasingly implemented in classrooms in the US, Canada and Chile but has a mixed evidence base. This Campbell systematic review aims to synthesise the evidence on the effectiveness of the curriculum in promoting children’s self-regulation and academic skills. It found positive but small effects for the program, mainly in relation to children’s maths skills.
