If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of August 7, 2015 when they were first posted.  And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.

1. Congratulations to LYSer, Rite Pintavalle! She is the new principal at Brazosport HS!! Who will be next? (By @LYSNation)

2. Challenge to all Teachers for the first day of school: skip reviewing rules and classroom procedures and teach the best lesson of your life. (By @benking24)

3. Knowing what you are going to learn immediately increases what you learn. Sounds like The Fundamental 5. (By @8Amber8)

4. If a campus doesn’t do the simple things (neat, clean, etc), there’s no confidence in its ability to do the hard things (quality teaching). (By @LYSNation)

5. Brad Weston (A LYS Principal): “We are constantly looking for ways to improve by leveraging high-yield strategies that we know work!” (By @amyphdennes)

6. There’s plenty of school choice within the public school system. Any plan that locates school choice outside the public trust violates that trust. (By @pastors4txkids)

7. Picture books are 2-3 times as likely as parent-child conversations to include a word that isn’t among the 5,000 most common English words. (By @tgrierhisd)

8. If a PLC has spent 20-minutes on any topic, it’s time for the PLC to take action. PLCs must be action-oriented. (By @stevebarkley)

9. Most of the obstacles to success in school districts are largely created by adults. (By @LYSNation)

10. The jury is in and the bi-partisan consensus is strong: Vouchers and privatization make awful public policy. (By @pastors4txkids)
