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 April 5, 2015.

1. Pastors know a church budget is not a financial statement, but a moral document reflecting values and beliefs. Texas Legislature, so is a state budget. (By @pastors4txkids)

2. How can we possibly expect young adults to answer the call of teaching when so many of our political leaders have such disdain for it? (By @pastors4txkids)

3. School choice means we give up on our capacity to be just people who gladly provide free schools of equitable quality to all our children. (By @johnkuhntx)

4. Let us make one thing clear, Texas Legislators: You cannot love Texas school children without loving their teachers and giving their schools the funding they need. (By @pastors4txkids)

5. Asking voters if they want lower taxes is like asking children if they want more candy. We all know the answer but we still need to make the adult decision. (By @LYSNation)

6. If we prioritized education and our schools above all else we wouldn’t need worry about prisons or economic development. (By @Snowmanlearning)

7. If your people aren’t learning…neither is your organization. (By @DCulberhouse)

8. Leading your schools is about keeping the focus on students and their needs and not the needs and wants of adults. (By @DavidPennid)

9. Unruly, loud, boisterous, out of their desks, bored, nodding off, walking around, cursing, calling names. A Texas classroom? No. The Texas Legislature. (By @pastors4txkids)

10. If the budget’s truly the moral document of our state, the Texas legislature has some real soul searching to do. (By @joethepleb)
