- The vaccinated politicians think the teachers will be fine. (By @jai_lies)
- All of the hot takes by billionaires, school privatization grifters, and their legislative lackeys kicking our public schools while they’re balancing teacher/student safety and reopening during this pandemic. We see you. We won’t forget. (By @pastors4OKkids)
- “It shall be the duty of the Legislature of the State to establish and make suitable provision for the support and maintenance of an efficient system of public free schools.” Not private schools. Not charter schools. Not home schools. Not virtual schools. “PUBLIC FREE SCHOOLS.” (By @pastors4txkids)
- Resilience—the ability to bounce back from setbacks is often described as the difference between successful and unsuccessful people. Great leaders understand that we can actually become more resilient by connecting with others in our most challenging times. (By @tgrierhisd)
- If this year has taught us anything it’s how important public education is and how important it is to properly FUND it. Schools are going to need additional funds to tackle trauma and learning loss. (By @Lsooner2)
- Learning is voluntary. That’s a sobering thought when you consider it. So our goal is to create a classroom environment where the students think the learning experience is worth the effort and worth the risk. (By @SteeleThoughts)
- It’s not leadership to talk down to staff in front of other staff, parents, or students. It’s bullying. (By @DrBradJohnson)
- Speaking of voucher programs: “Analysis of 65 countries suggested that education systems where parents chose schools, and schools competed for enrollment, are often more socially segregated — often in relation to socio-economic differences.” (By @DerekWBlack)
- INCOMPETENT INFANTS AREN’T RESPONSIBLE TO DO HARD THINGS Life without responsibility is easier than life with responsibility. Anyone who thinks responsibility is easy doesn’t get it. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- For better or worse educators have dedicated our lives to teaching children. But when we dare demand true safety, we are told that we are greedy and don’t care about our students. If you aren’t an educator, you’ll never know how offensive this is. (By @D_Stieber)
