1. Biggest bang for your buck?  Improve classroom instruction.  Period. (By @DrMikeMetz)

2. Class size matters a lot, major research shows. Can we please end this silly debate? (By @STAARtest)

3. Most state testing is over.  Time to get out of your offices and visit some classrooms! (By @DrMikeMetz)

4. Devoting space on your desk to something doesn’t make it a priority. It has to be on your calendar if it’s a real priority. (By @eduleadership)

5. Texas Public Schools as “Godless” is a lie designed to demonize a system in which educators do the Lord’s work most faithfully. (By @pastors4txkids)

6. Oklahoma Study: According to the State’s own effectiveness grades, “A” & “B” schools are the least effective for poor and minority children. (By @RYHTexas)

7. Thankful for pastors who are leading and speaking up against the shameful assault on our public schools and communities. (By @randypittenger)

8. We need to have the most highly skilled teachers teaching the students with the highest need. (By @hklageman)

9. The problem with the teacher complaint that accountability makes them teach to the test is that the practice is mostly self-inflicted. (By @LYSNation)

10. When my two sons served in Iraqi war, I winced when people objected to paying for it (the war). Likewise, I wince when people object to paying for public education. (By @pastors4txkids)
