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. “When we neglect our public schools, we neglect the common good.” -Rev. Rachel Gunter Shapard (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. Social media gave everyone a printing press. Loudmouths whose pet theories once found ears only at the bar can now command a global audience just as easily as blue blood Ivy League journalists. This being the case, public education in civics is far more important now than ever. (By @johnkuhntx)


  1. “When schooling comes to be viewed mainly as a source of private benefit, both schools and society suffer grave consequences.” (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. The students who failed last year are the students with the greatest risk of failing this year. The earlier you provide them with additional support, the better their chance of passing. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Without communication there is no relationship. Without a relationship, there is no love. Without love, there is no trust. Without trust, there is no hope. Without hope, there is fear. Fear will paralyze. (By @jck4life)


  1. When a team has trust, conflict becomes nothing but the pursuit of truth, an attempt to find the best possible answer. (By @patricklencioni)


  1. “Mediocre people don’t like high-achievers and high-achievers don’t like mediocre people.” –Nick Saban (By @Leadershipfreak)


  1. “You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.” –George Herman “Babe” Ruth​ (By @LeeWall06733274)


  1. Cognitive scientists have known for decades that the most important determinant of reading comprehension isn’t abstract skill; it’s how much background knowledge the reader has relating to the topic. Wealthier kids = more camps, vacations, educated mothers = background knowledge. (By @tgrierhisd)


  1. Your classroom is your field for your content. As you get ready for school this year, think about everything in your classroom and judge it by this standard… Does it junk up my field? (By @LYSNation)


Think. Work. Achieve.
