1. “Texas public schools are fully funded.” A lie is still a lie no matter how many times it’s presented and repeated as the truth. (By @pastor4txkids)

2. Why insist schools are adequately funded when our courts, superintendents, principals and teachers know they are not? (By @pastor4txkids)

3. Don’t use data to sort students but to sort instructional practices that work or don’t work! (By @yankee_todd)

4. Use common assessment data to sort instructional strategies, not to sort kids. (By @englishtchr1977)

5. One of the great ironies of organization leadership is that we take our best people and ask them to work significantly harder than the others. (By  @JasonJj7)

6. Two things that add chaos to the classroom: clutter and attitude. (By @vbstuart)

7. Educators, your purpose is to develop talent not select talent. (By @SteveRamirez)

9. If you want to be an instructional leader, make sure you’re spending time where the instruction is happening. (By @eduleadership)
