1. The A-F grading system for Texas schools is a new low for the Texas Legislature. It’s the height of hypocrisy to grade schools without properly funding them. (By @pastors4txkids)

2. The Texas Legislature doesn’t need a bill to grade their low performance in their constitutional duty to fund Texas schools. A big fat F. (By @pastors4txkids)

3. Education is a public trust. That is, a provision “by the public, for the public,” as John Adams so aptly put it. Not a private enterprise. (By @pastors4txkids)

4. “The attack on public education by the elites funding privatization is part of the shirking of collective responsibility. (By @ongoingly)

5. The Goal of Instructional Coaching: To move from implementing best practices randomly to implementing best practices purposefully and habitually. (By @CabidaCain)

6. Today’s Quote: “Always remember – the fundamental purpose of school is learning, not teaching.” (By @DrRichAllen)

7. If, as principal, you are the most knowledgeable about all of the Curriculum and Instruction at your campus, then you have hired poorly. (By @TroyMooney)

8. In a Lesson Frame, the close is not the task. It is the articulated proof of understanding after doing the task. (By @LYSNation)

9. Research shows writing down a goal or objective will increase the likelihood of you carrying out that goal by 50%. (By @lynnfishman)

10. You can easily judge the character of someone by how they treat those who can do nothing for them. (By @CoachKWisdom)
