Yesterday, a friend and fellow LYSer sent me a link to a blog post with a message, “Hey, check out the lists!”

The post is an active poll to identify some of today’s top education policy thinkers, chucked in age groups. I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for these type of polls so of course I clicked the link and started reading and voting. The group in their 20’s, was the list where I recognized the fewest candidates, The group in their 50’s, I recognized the most candidates.  But the group in their 40’s… there was the big surprise.

As LYS Educators (like you) continue to be relentless in their focus on maximizing student opportunity, our beliefs and practices are slowing spreading from state to state. Bottom line, People Are Noticing.

So check out the poll, the link is below. Then vote early and vote often.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
