1. “There’s no low-cost alternative to a high-quality teacher.” (By @TxEdStrong)
2. “School choice (charters, vouchers, etc.) has not produced innovation or competition. It has only drained taxpayer dollars away from America’s public schools.” (By @antraasa)
3. Winners worry about winning, losers worry about winners. (By @Ndathletes)
4. When you’re the head coach, you’re the head coach 24/7. No matter what happens, it’s on your watch, and to a degree, it’s your problem. –Bill Belichick (By @CoachMotto)
5. With formative classroom observations, the only number that matters in district-wide comparisons is… Volume. (By @LYSNation)
6. Never forget, the critical variable in the classroom is the quality of delivered instruction. (By @LYSNation)
7. Do not let inspiring stories of people who beat the odds distract us from the necessary work of improving the odds. (By @palan57)
8. You need to 15 to 20 (short) classroom observations to have a statistically significant sample. Any less, and you are as likely to chase anomalies as you are to help improve typical teacher practice. (By @LYSNation)
9. Parents, pastors, business and community leaders, advocates will strenuously oppose: Tying funding to STAAR results; Local tax caps for schools; Cheating Pre-K; Starving Texas public schools. The time for political games is over. Fund our kids’ education now. (By @pastors4txkids)
10. The Fundamental 5, by Sean Cain and Mike Laird, is a great educational book! My biggest takeaway is to always frame your lesson! (By @MrsEllisTx)
