A LYS campus leader in Texas submits the follow observation.


There is a tremor in the Force.  First, Premont ISD gets a reprieve from death.  Second, we get the “Perversion” speech.  Third, the state backs off on the 15% rule. Fourth, North Forest ISD gets its 11th hour reprieve.

Also, our students’ performance on the STAAR Test was better than we expected.  Our kids actually thought they might have over-prepared.  Of course this is anecdotal, but added with every other tremor in the Force, it may be a part of a bigger mosaic than we yet realize.

I know there has been some push back, but I was not under the impression the push back was so great to cause this level of state back pedaling. There is more going on.  I just don’t know what.  Yet.

SC Response Since you are using a movie reference to create meaning in chaos, I’ll use one to do the same. To quote my favorite stand-up philosopher,

“Politics. Politics. Politics. Politics.”

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
