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 12, 2015.

1. Despite rejection of vouchers in 28 referendums, legislators continue to ignore the will of their constituents. (By @waltxyz)

2. Several Texas Senators beholden to those who feel Texas public education is a “wasteful government bureaucracy.” No wonder they seek to destroy it. (By @pastors4txkids)

3. If your teachers aren’t learning, your school is not getting better. (By @vhsaldana) 

4. I’ve taught many different approaches to writing, including the traditional workshop. Nothing compares to writing and reading every day. (By @Sam__Weller)

5. The Texas Politician who protects us from the Common Core is like the police officer that protects us from giraffe attacks. It’s a made-up issue. (By @LYSNation)

6. Responsibility of government is to guard, protect the public interest. But, this can’t be done by those who think “government” and “public” are evil. (By @pastors4txkids)

7. In US, 3 out of 10 college students drop out. Many colleges have embarrassingly low graduation rates. Discourage students from going there! (By @tgrierhisd)

8. Arrogance is forgivable. Ignorance is understandable. But together they are a dangerous combination. (By @JWCrowder)

9. Ms. Merki (Goliad ES) closed the lesson in her math class with a critical writing activity! (By @LYSNation)

10. Excited to hear that The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) is being in used in the University of Michigan M.Ed. program! GO BLUE!!! (By @LYSNation)
