According to spokesman.com/sponsored/2015/sep/08/yale-marc-brackett-lady-gaga-social-learning/ Marc Brackett – a senior research scientist in psychology at Yale University - told a "TED Talks"-audience about a GED-test (to get into graduate school) that he FAILED because he was (understandably) distraught over his mother's death. He retook the test a year later, earned his Ph.D., and is now (besides a research scientist at Yale’s Edward Zigler Center in Child Development & Social Policy) director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. The Emotion Revolution is planted in a survey he (& Lady Gaga's Born this Way Foundation) put online for high-school students, basically asking 'what is necessary in order for schools to be more engaging? What needs to happen? What would it look like?' That survey evolved out of a partnership between Brackett’s Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Born This Way Foundation, founded by performing artist Lady Gaga (born Stefani Germanotta) and her mother Cynthia Germanotta. Marc is finding that emotions DO affect your learning. And is developing 'how to learn what to do with the emotions when they arise.' Lady Gaga puts it, “I’m doing everything that I can, working with experts, really studying the statistics to figure out a way we can make it cool or normal to be kind and loving.... Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.”
