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.
- Why is it okay to have students redo courses they fail, but not okay to have them redo assignments and assessments that they fail? (By @Jeff_Zoul)
- We over-punish students in school because it is just so darn easy. (By @LYSNation)
- Educators should be held to the highest regard and compensated a heck of a lot more than they are now, in addition to having the best possible retirement and healthcare benefits and every resource they need to do their jobs. These heroes deserve better. (By @Spencer4Texas)
- “We can all agree that our public schools face many challenges, but I’m convinced the biggest challenge of all is the image problem created by those who intentionally spread misinformation to undermine public confidence in our public schools.” ~Scott Milder (By @SchoolPriority)
- Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is a coward. Scared of who is in the bathroom with him, scared of educating all Texans well, scared of debating his opponent Mike Collier. I think he is yella. (By @edu_theory)
- “If we divert funding from public schools to subsidize privately run, unaccountable charters and unregulated religious schools, we harm our children while subtracting money from regulated, transparent, and accountable public schools. (By @pastors4kykids)
- Teacher made tests mask pacing issues. Why is this important? Not being on pace with the scope and sequence is as bad, if not worse, as poor delivery of instruction. (By @LYSNation)
- What make a valid test question? The wrong answer choices. With a valid test question, the wrong answer choices are equally enticing to the guesser as the right answer. (By @LYSNation)
- Weaknesses clamor for attention. “Look at me! Fix me!” But success is found in leveraging strengths. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Bumped into Senator Lindsey Graham (South Carolina) in the airport. I had 30-seconds to share anything I thought was important. So, I told him, “When you see Senator John McCain (Arizona) tell him that I’m praying for him.” (By @LYSNation)
Think. Work. Achieve.
