  1. We finished my 3rd year of practicing The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird). It works! Just reread the book last week to get me focused for next year. Need to be more deliberate about having students practice & execute purposeful talk. (By @mrhartgis)


  1. Our founders knew that schools were vital for a thriving democracy. We support the free public education of all children of the state of Oklahoma as a moral obligation. (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. A good school calendar has as many instructional days as possible prior to the state assessment tests and as few days of school as possible after the state assessment tests. Most school calendars aren’t good. (By @LYSNation)


  1. One of the most important concepts in servant-leadership training. You can’t be too big to do the little things. (By @johnnorlin)


  1. Do it because it’s the right thing to do, not because you want credit or praise for it. Humility wins. (By @KevinDeShazo)


  1. 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)
