- Inclusion should be the “rock” on which to build programs and initiatives of civil institutions meant to ensure that no one, especially those in greatest difficulty, is left behind. (By @Pontifex)
- “To attach high stakes of school funding to a child’s standardized test performance is not only inefficient. It is immoral. (By @pastors4txkids)
- “If a child is fortunate enough to be born on the one side, they have a safety net that won’t let them fail. But the only hope a child has if they are born on the other side … is to get an education. It is the only ticket out.” (By @DerekWBlack)
- “Those who would renegotiate the boundaries between church and state must therefore answer a difficult question: Why would we trade a system that has served us so well for one that has served others so poorly?” (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Handwriting is food for the emerging reading brain. MRIs show crucial reading circuitry flickering to life when young readers print letters and then read them. The effect largely disappears when letters are typed. (By @smerrill777)
- A student came to me yesterday because of her struggles in a class. She said: “I know it’s not my teacher cause I had her last year and did well. I know it’s not me cause I had all A’s last year. I think it’s this virtual learning process.” This is hard. I know you feel it too. (By @SteeleThoughts)
- One short outburst produces surprising turbulence and distrust. A small offense causes disproportionate harm. Because bad is stronger than good, you gain disproportionate advantage when you eliminate bad. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Anyone remember when U.S. Senate candidates didn’t usually tout themselves by saying that they are “completely exonerated?” (By @BeschlossDC)
- It’s not how you start … It’s how you finish that counts. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” (By @CoryBooker)
