- “An important step toward curbing the privatization of education will be helping the public understand the difference between the ideological appeal of freedom of choice and the damage wrought through the theft of public school funding…” (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Our role in society is not only one of taxpayer. More importantly, we are citizens! Our responsibility is to our community, city, state, nation. We make critical investments in schools, roads, water, safety that will help ALL folks! This is what proper patriotism is all about! (By @pastors4txkids)
- The more experienced I became as an educational leader, the more I listen to longtime friend Gene Huddle who once said to me, “You should first look at the systems before you look for someone to blame when you are not getting the results you want.” (By @tgrierhisd)
- The following truth is rarely spoken by the political class, so we will say it as pastors: we must secure fair, just, equitable— and new— state revenue sources for our essential public services, namely quality public education for all children. (By @pastors4txkids)
- I am not remotely interested in just being good. – Vince Lombardi (By @CoachMotto)
- Credit recovery programs aren’t the best option. But we have to remember that the student will have better work options and continuing education options a with a high school diploma than without. (By @LYSNation)
- Less funding for schools = Less salary for teachers = Lower quality candidate pool = BAD for kids! Money alone isn’t the answer to all of education’s ills, but more highly qualified teachers will certainly help! (By @FixingEducation)
- Asking teachers (and principals) to do ‘one more thing’ and not remove anything else from their plate doesn’t help anyone. ESPECIALLY students! (By @FixingEducation)
- We win games in practice. We learn and follow the fundamentals of our game better than anyone. All of our games are won in practice. – Vince Lombardi (By @SportsMotto)
- A school culture that values and celebrates innovation begins with a leader who is willing to climb out on a limb. You do not become awesome by staying safe all the time. (By @PaulHermesEDU)
