- “Despite their name, these tax-subsidized scholarships to private schools do not promote equal educational opportunity. Instead, they channel tax money that could be used to fund public schools to pay private school tuition.” (BY @pastors4OKkids)
- I’m voting for the community good and long term economic prosperity. I’m voting for school bonds. (By @LYSNation)
- 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)
- During a short walk-thru, make subjective determinations and you’re actually writing fiction. Fiction isn’t useful for decision making. Make objective determinations and you’re reporting facts. Enough facts give you a fighting chance to improve outcomes. (By @LYSNation)
- When observing inclusion teachers there is the need for some flexible thinking when deciding on what elements of best practice to look for. (By @LYSNation)
- The key cognitive functions required of every leader are the abilities to summarize and to compare/contrast. Having your students engage in these activities everyday means that you are building leaders. Instruction… It’s kind of a big deal. (By @LYSNation)
- Everyone goes through adversity in life, but what matters is how you learn from it. -L. Holtz (By @CoachMotto)
- Humility doesn’t need status. Arrogance compares, stands aloof, and puts others down. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Many schools are getting better at the “taught well” part, while not improving at the “taught all the require content” part. Which means that while things may be visibly improving in the classroom, test scores continue to flatline or even get worse. (By @LYSNation)
- When you hear your anti-public school state politician tout his/her record on increasing school funding, do a little math and remember what my dad used to tell me when I was obfuscating… “Don’t piss in my ear and tell me it’s raining.” (By @LYSNation)
Think. Work. Achieve.
