- Take care of the tiniest detail, because the little details add up until they represent significant differences. Let nothing slip through the cracks. –Bill Belichick (By @CoachMotto
- We ask schools today to achieve higher outcome goals, do more things, serve more diverse student needs than 1, 2 or 3 decades ago. Doing more… Achieving more… COSTS MORE! (By @SchlFinance101)
- Teachers, If you let struggling readers actually read what they want, appropriate comics, graphic novels, magazines etc. then you don’t have to entice them with rewards or need to connect to a grade, etc. They will read because they enjoy it! (By @DrBradJohnson)
- “Voucher programs often start small – such as targeting students with disabilities or families with lower incomes…Eventually, students using vouchers are those who have never enrolled in a public school…” (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Use your student performance data to gauge the effect of adult practice. It’s a more difficult process, but significantly more impactful than simply sorting students. (By @LYSNation)
- “The best books for kids are the books they can and will read.” (By @MrSchuReads)
- Do charter schools make it possible to avoid the uncomfortable and hard work of integration? One writer recently noted that, “Charters as a group are ill suited to the task of justice because they are a legacy of failed justice.” (By @pastors4OKkids)
- A charter school must be either exceedingly effective, exceedingly efficient, or both. Charter schools that are not should be closed. Full Stop. (By @LYSNation)
- Privatizers have awful ideas that have failed miserably…but they defend them to the death. (By @pastors4txkids)
- Arrogance ties itself to status, position, and admiration. (By @Leadershipfreak)
