In response to the 8/14/2013 post, “LYS – A Cult or a Club,” some LYS Principals write:

Hey Negative Nellies,

Funny, if LYS is just telling you stuff you already know, how come your performance isn’t the same as ours?  I guess knowing isn’t the same as doing. 

Heck, my doctor tells me I’m too big and I KNOW how to lose weight, yet he and I have the same conversation almost every year.  Sign me up for the membership card!!!!


To the Naysayers,

Who cares what LYS is? My students are performing better than they ever have before. I’m proud to be a LYSer. Where is my a membership card?

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
