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 May 3, 2015.

1. Systems for high performance are more sustainable than heroic leaders. All leaders eventually leave; systems remain. (By @eduleadership)

2. Texas teachers execute their calling day-by-day with quiet dignity and courage while certain Texas Legislature members attack them with impunity. (By @pastors4txkids)

3. The litmus test for my vote in the future is, “Do you believe Pre-K is Godless place and bad for children?” (By @PaulaKelm)

4. Starting late wastes time, punishes the punctual and conveys that in the future, attendees can arrive late. (By @MartyNemko)

5. Do vouchers improve student performance for the students who receive them? Spoiler: No. (By @eduleadership)

6. A one-point increase in high school GPA corresponds to an average increase in annual earnings by 12-14%. (By @UntoldSecrets)

7. More than anything else, instructional leaders need decisional information. That’s why we can’t hole up in the office. (By @eduleadership)

8. No research supports the efficacy of letter grades as a valid tool for learning. So it’s par that the Texas Legislature likes the idea. (By @osunewell)

9. Senate spurned the teachers of Texas by sending their already inadequate public school money to private “religious” schools. (By @pastors4txkids)

10. When you give up on public schools, you give up on democracy. (By @johnkuhntx)
