If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS tweets from the past week 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. For every teacher who complains about and struggles with insultingly low salaries, yet votes for those who refuse to adequately fund public education. You are the root cause of your own pain. (By @LYSNation)

2. So proud of teachers standing strong for their schoolchildren all across America. They have watched their elected representatives starve their schools, push privatization policies, and demean their calling before God. And now they are saying “No more.” (By @pastors4txkids)

3. It is imperative that we create the political will to fund our schools, prevent their privatization, honor our schoolteachers, and reaffirm public education as the cornerstone of American democracy and moral society. Justice demands it. Our children’s future depends on it. (By @pastors4txkids)

4. An analysis of more than 2,000 college STEM classes has found that 55% of classroom interactions consisted mostly of conventional lecturing — a style that prior research has identified as among the *least* effective at teaching and engaging students. (By @DanielPink)

5. The end of the school year is approaching. If we want to ensure our students finish the year strong, then we ourselves need to finish strong. The end of the year is not the time to cut corners. (By @justintarte)

6. This is simple. God is for kids. We are for kids. We demand our Oklahoma Legislature get onboard and do right by our kids. Just be honest: you’ve defunded Oklahoma Public Education for 10+ years thinking you could stimulate the economy. That failed. Fix what’s broken. This is embarrassing. (By @pastors4OKkids)

7. John Wooden’s Four P’s: (P)lanning – (P)reparation – (P)ractice – (P)erformance. These are the keys to successful execution. (By @CoachMotto)

8. The most dangerous leadership weakness is the one you have but think you don’t. (By @Leadershipfreak)

9. Reading The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) for my University of North Texas – Dallas graduate course and it taught me to always keep it simple for the benefit of the students. Properly framing my lesson will remind my students of lesson expectations and why they need to know that. (By @alvrzkim)

10. Too many educators vote based on their reactions to “conservative” agenda social issues instead of doing their homework and supporting pro-education candidates. Otherwise, guys like Dan (Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick) wouldn’t stand a chance. It’s an education thing, pure and simple. (By @PD_Miller)


Think. Work. Achieve.
