    Interesting that you frame these as “beyond” the diploma … I really think that schools need to think about what a diploma means to their system and sort of backward map from there.

    I like the 5 values that are core the learning experience. Everyone in the school organization should embrace the same once a set is agreed upon. That gives kids a much clearer sense of the kinds of values and life habits that are likely to need.
