1. Transformational leaders have effect size of .11. Instructional leaders have effect size of .42. Start with The Foundation Trinity and stay there! (By @brandyjbaker)

2. “Next in importance to freedom and justice is education – without which neither of the first two can be maintained.” (By @DrRichAllen)

3. Never let your staff complain about students. Behavior, effort, attitude, capacity are ALL teachable! (By @brandyjbaker)

4. No student should fail a class due to homework—it’s not an accurate enough measure of learning on which to base such an important decision. (By @danielmccabe)

5. Is it just me, or do freshly waxed halls bring new life and hit some kind of internal reset button in a school? (By @BluntEducator)

6. The reputation of a school is based, to a large degree, by what the faculty says about the school! (By @tgrierhisd)

7. “The main part of intellectual education is not the acquisition of facts, but learning how to make those facts come alive.” (By @DrRichAllen)

8. We ignore law enforcement in gun policy, educators in school policy, and hospital administrators in health policy. Who are we listening to? (By @pastors4txkids)

9. If you’re out of ideas about how to blast a presidential candidate, why not attack him for supporting the Common Core, as if it means they support socialism. (By @harvinmoore)

10. A society that won’t pay to educate poor student is a society that’s going to pay to incarcerate poor dropouts. (By @JohnFugelsang)
