- Utah governor orders statewide mask mandate, new coronavirus restrictions – good for him, now others should too. (By @JRubinBlogger)
- I think it’s a great time for teachers to check in with their students. I think a lot of kids are stressed and overwhelmed. And yes… it’s always a good idea for admin to check in with teachers. (By @SteeleThoughts)
- If we can’t be absolutely sure we are grading students’ learning and not their circumstances, we need to have a serious conversation about who we are “ok” assigning a failing grade to. (By @fastcrayon)
- “Wearing masks is critical to protect our teachers and staff, as well as students and families.” (By @pastors4OKkids)

- Self-awareness comes before leadership improvement begins. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Just dawned on me this morning that Joe Biden winning means No more Secretary DeVos! Bye, bye Betsy! (By @CollierForTexas)

- Texas is among the richest states in the country. We clearly have the means to keep our constitutional covenant “to make suitable provision for public free schools.” Do we have the will? (By @ pastors4txkids)
