1. Do not underestimate the value of example, for it is more powerful than a thousand words, a thousand “likes”, retweets or YouTube videos. (By @Pontifex)

2. School Segregation and related school improvement ideas (see: Vouchers) benefit the few to the ill of the many. Segregation doesn’t improve at scale, it destroys. (By @LYSNation)

3. The angry adult should not be the person determining the student consequence. (By @LYSNation)

4. The main purposes of student assessment data is to highlight the quality of the adult practice and help us decide on what to do to improve. (By @LYSNation)

5. All Socorro ISD juniors are taking the SAT test today at no cost to families. SISD, educating and treating our students as one of our own children. (By @JEspinoza)

6. Sorting students is a by-product of assessment. If that’s all you do the only guaranteed result is that the number of students who struggle will increase. (By @LYSNation)

7. A student consequence should not be determined to satisfy the adult. It should be selected based on making the student school ready, sooner rather than later. (By @LYSNation)

8. Teachers who don’t take the time to build relationships with students are making their job much harder than it should be. (By @BluntEducator)
