The authors use the analogy of the diamond cutting industry to compare it to an ideal school system that would take care of and nurture children in grades B-16. They envision a school system that utilizes a humanistic, inclusive, socio-emotionally-sensitive, strength-based, and culturally-responsive approach that “takes care” of its youth so that they can become ethical and skilled citizens of the world. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia system, the authors outline the specific components that would be needed to create this loveable school.
