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 March 1, 2015.

1. Why is there even a doubt which high school to attend? “The entire instructional program Fairdale HS (a LYS Campus) is remarkable” says the Kentucky Department of Education (By @Dawgs_Athletics)

2. Vouchers: Designed to save well-off parents who are trapped paying private school tuition at full price without a tax-funded discount. (By @johnkuhntx)

3. Leaders, sometimes you have to be reminded that if the Haters didn’t hate you, you wouldn’t be doing your job. (By @LYSNation)

4. Continuous improvement requires regular monitoring and evaluation. Otherwise, why walk in? (By @TinneyTroy)

5. Excellent schools don’t believe in excellence – only in constant improvement and constant change. (By @danielmccabe)

6. Leadership reality is not staff reality. There must be constant effort by the leader to ensure these paths cross. (By @CabidaCain)

7. “Critical writing is not about doing well on the STAAR, it is about depth of thinking.” (By @Edu2Change)

8. “Teach every student to the best of our abilities. Maximize growth for EVERY CHILD.” (By @RANESIAEDWARDS)

9. Is education the only profession where non-practitioners think they know better and make it their business to try to run it? (By @Snowmanlearning)

10. Two primary keys to a community’s success are public education and access to health care. Our legislature is purposefully shortchanging both. (By @LYSNation)
