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. With students, academic cheating is more a function of trying to please adults and/or meet expectations without adequate resources, than outright dishonesty. (By @LYSNation)


  1. For Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick to clutch their pearls over high property tax bills is like the arsonist tsk-ing that it costs so much for the fire department to respond to the 4-alarm house fire he set. (By @WhistleForTxEd)


  1. It’s more hypocrisy than we can take to hear our Texas state leaders whine about high property taxes when they created the problem in the first place. Fund our Texas Public Schools and the problem will be solved. (By @pastors4txkids)


  1. Ever notice how when we give money to rich people or companies it’s called subsidies but when we give money to poor people it’s called welfare? (By @NathanHRubin)


  1. “Scholarship” Tax Credits are not new, they are not innovative. The outcome is the exact same as vouchers – dollars intended to go to public schools to serve all kids are diverted to private schools that serve less than 5% of Oklahoma kids. (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. In today’s high stakes environment, if staff training does not represent a significant investment in intellectual, time, and monetary resources, your school will never operate at anything resembling high effectiveness and efficiency. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Effective staff training is embedded during the school day, delivered over-time, in small actionable chunks. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Situation ignorance is part of the human condition. This is in no way a commentary on work ethic, effort or intelligence, as we are all ignorant of something. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Much of what we do every day in the classroom is a habit or routine. And the longer these habits have been entrenched the more powerful they become. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Focus on effort, not winning. Winning is a byproduct of effort. –John Wooden (By @CoachMotto)


Think. Work. Achieve.
