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 December 28, 2014.

1. I’m reading, The Fundamental Five (Cain & Laird), this week! (By @jenlezcol)

2. Dear administrators, Spend more time in classrooms. Good teachers will love it, bad teachers will hate it, and students will appreciate it. (By @justintarte)

3. If something you’re doing or thinking isn’t fixing or improving the situation then it’s wasting your time. (By @CoachKWisdom)

4. Vouchers are like Titanic lifeboats… Only for 1st class passengers, not an option for others.  Did we not learn from history? (By @RatliffT)

5. Research by Allington (and others) shows that students should be reading for 60 minutes and writing for 40 minutes a day IN SCHOOL. Is this your school? (By @mwaiksnis)

6. In Nevada, students who are declared habitually truant could be delayed from obtaining a driver’s license, or have their license suspended. (By @PrincipalHolder)

7. Aspire to become worthy of having followers. (By @blitzkrieg607)

8. Today’s Quote:  “There are quite a number of things taught in school that one has to later unlearn.” (By @DrRichAllen)

9. Federal funding for basic Research & Development should be uncontroversial, yet has fallen to lowest percentage of Gross Domestic Product in four decades. (By @FareedZakaria)

10. UH Cougars, down 6 to 31 with less the 11 minutes left in the game, score 29 points in the next 10 minutes. Win 35 to 34! Never give up! (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
