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.If it doesn’t require courage, it’s not big enough. (By @Leadershipfreak)


2.We can increase student outcomes. We can decrease school expenditures. But you have to pick one. To demand both does not make you a leader. It makes you delusional, or a petulant child, or a… politician. (By @LYSNation)


3.Tax cuts for the affluent have a negative impact on education and infrastructure. Any argument contrary ignores real-life evidence. Confront the lie and educate your neighbors. (By @LYSNation)


4.If the next time you say ‘hello’ to a student in the hall they look startled and confused, then you know there aren’t enough adults speaking to students in non-academic spaces. It also means it’s time to double down on your ‘hellos.’ (By @justintarte)


5.We can apply the “crazy cat person rule” to gun ownership. There is a line between a no one cares that you own a couple of guns and we should all be concerned with the excessive number of guns you own. (By @LYSNation)


6.There are significant differences between knowing what to do, doing it, and doing it exceedingly well. (By @LYSNation)


7.We use the PowerWalks system from Lead Your School. PowerWalks uses great data, frequent walks, coaching conversations to improve quality instruction through research-based practices. (By @finch_misty)


8.The holiness to which the Lord calls you grows through small gestures in everyday life. (By @Pontifex)


9.Objective truths are established by evidence. Personal truths by faith. Political truths by incessant repetition. (By @neiltyson)


10.Average is forgettable. (By @Leadershipfreak)


Think. Work. Achieve.
