Blog Post: Top LYS Tweets – May 29, 2018

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. Anti-public education candidates say we are in pocket of teacher unions. Our response? “Yes, we are. Proud of it. We are privileged to stand with public servants who work long hours at low pay with our poorest children. Now, let us ask you: Who’s pocket are you in?” (By @pastors4txkids)


  1. There are many lies being perpetrated this run-off election season. You recognize them instinctively. Call them out everywhere you go. At church, in the teachers’ lounge, the Sunday school class, the softball field, the grocery store. It’s our job to confront and expose them. (By @pastors4txkids)


  1. The academic program is at least as important as football… isn’t it? (By @LYSNation)


  1. Not for profit PUBLIC SCHOOLS outperform charters in almost every area. Don’t listen to the false narrative. Be informed.(By @Snowmanlearning)


  1. Kids are like a bank account. You have to make deposits in their life before you can take out withdrawals. They respond best to those who have invested time and true interest in them. (By @RobertShipley2)


  1. You got hired to make a difference and execute your plan. Go in and make the changes that need to be made at the time when people expect changes to be made. (By @LYSNation)


  1. It is wrong to divert public money to church schools. Government has NO legitimate authority to establish religion. Period. Thus the “wall of separation” between church and state. Because of it, both have thrived. Without it, both will crumble from corruption. (By @pastors4txkids)


  1. During the honeymoon period of a new job, people expect you to do thing different, they give you the benefit of the doubt, and they are quicker to forgive. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Persistence guarantees that results are inevitable. (By @wadestandford)


  1. Per the Texas Education Agency, students who were eligible for PreK but did not attend were more than 2x more likely to be asked to repeat Kindergarten (incurring another year of full day cost) and were also held back at a 50% higher rate in 1st grade than those who did enroll in PreK.
