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.
- “Regrettably, public education has been underfunded, ignored, under-led, sidestepped, attacked, and then criticized for not getting better results.” -Charles Butt (@Rivardreport)
- If the political leaders of our state had half the moral courage our public school teachers possess, Texas would lead the nation in education funding instead of trail it. (By @pastors4txkids)
- The problems of school performance represent a Gordian Knot. If there is one person who can cut through everything, it is… the Principal. (By @LYSNation)
- “Real instructional relevance is student developed, not teacher delivered. Rigor for Rigor’s Sake. Teach kids to THINK.” (By @Kleah3)
- Arming teachers is a colossally awful idea on multiple dangerous fronts. The Texas Legislature should focus on properly funding our children’s education, as they are constitutionally bound to do, rather than turning our classrooms into armed camps. (By @pastors4txkids)
- You cannot run a marathon at a sprint pace. Run sprints at a sprint pace. The school year should be composed of a bunch of sprints. (By ElsikHighSchool)
- Reduce the NOTHING … and just do SOMETHING! (By @bigfunPHD)
- Engage students in frank discussions about the relationship between effort and performance. (By @robertjmarzano)
- Leadership isn’t for the extraordinary. It’s simply for those who show up on purpose, with no ego, who want others to become their best. (By @dw_dwr)
- Everyone always says you can’t put a price on school safety or a student’s life, but Texas State Senator Creighton just suggested $250 million statewide may be too much in the Texas Senate hearing on school safety. $250 million breaks down to roughly $46 per student. (By ATPE_MontyE)
