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 8, 2015.

1. 90% of North Caroline vouchers go to private religious schools. Tax dollars paying for religion. God needs no help from Caesar. (By @pastors4txkids)

2. Texas Legislature members who tout the Constitution on guns flaunt it when it comes to vouchers. “No establishment of religion” means exactly that: No.‬ (By @pastors4txkids)

3. “In a fire, everyone runs away – except for the fireman who run towards it.  When dealing with challenging students, be the fireman.” (By @DrRichAllen)

4. Do not fear those who do not understand your mission in life.  Living a life of adding value to others is not for everyone. (By @blitzkrieg607)

5. Principals who do not talk to teachers about instruction are like football coaches who do not talk to players about football. Why is one acceptable and the other is not? (By @LYSNation)

6. People seldom get in touch w/ their greatest strengths & abilities until its forced on them by major challenges. (By @RandyMBrown)

7. If only the rich can afford to go to the ‘good colleges,’ then we simply have a system of replicating privilege that already exists. (By @tgrierhisd)

8. Chastising students for not doing well on an assignment is not an RTI strategy. (By @LYSNation)

9. Teachers, repeat after me: Popcorn reading is NOT an effective instructional strategy. (By @LYSNation)

10. Question: why aren’t educators the single most reliable, authoritative sources of info about Texas education for the Texas Legislature? Keep asking yourself that. (By @pastors4txkids)
