A number of you in the LYS Nation are now Twitter users.  If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us.  To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of November 3, 2013.

1. An underlying belief of the anti-tax faction: The infrastructure built and paid for by our parents is just fine for us to use for free. (By @LYSNation)

2. Do we have a right to not use best practices and strategies that reach all kids, because it is easier for us adults? Or is that malpractice? (By @Snowmanlearning)

3. Ignorance is not a valid opinion. (By @LYSNation)

4. School vouchers in Tennessee do not equate to school choice… They equate to loss of funds for public education. We cannot remain silent! (By @jbriannorton)

5. Note to politicians: Going to school doesn’t make you an education expert anymore than getting a drivers license makes you a NASCAR driver. (By @BluntEducator)

6. On any given day, substitute teachers fill 10% of our nation’s classrooms. (By @sjunkins)

7. Just found out that The University of Texas – Dallas is using The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) in a reading instruction methods course! (By @LYSNation)

8. Too many schools are killing themselves by drowning in data collection while neglecting the most important; the response to the data. (By @justintarte)

9. In the absence of leadership everybody tries to fill the void and it is usually the strong, negative personalities who do it. (By @ToddWhitaker)

10. The best-selling education book on Kindle today? Glad you asked. It’s The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird). Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)
