- Privatization worsens equity by draining precious resources. It increases the chasm between haves and have nots. It’s time to have the conversation that EVERY child should have access to excellent Public School Choices. Every county. Every Zip Code. (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Myth of Cost Savings from Private School Vouchers – Notion that it costs less to educate students with publicly funded private school vouchers than it does to educate them in public schools ignores realities – voucher programs are expensive, impractical and unsound. (By @Network4pubEd)
- The public responsibility, sworn under oath by democratically-elected fellow citizens, is to protect the public interest. This is the profound moral duty of government before God. It is a trust. To advance private interests–to privatize that trust–is wrong. (By @pastors4txkids)
- If you want to lead you must become someone who serves others. The path to great leadership requires service and sacrifice. (By @JonGordon11)
- Your best and only option for progress is to learn and adapt as you go. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- By the time they hit sixth grade, students attending school more than 90 percent of the time have significantly greater chances of graduating on time (Balfanz, Herzog, & Maclver, 2007). (By @tgrierhisd)
- Teacher morale is not tricky. Involve them. Support them. Recognize them. Value them. (By @SteeleThoughts)
- “School choice” is only a “choice” for the more privileged. It is one of the biggest destroyers of public education – and our democracy – ever. Until we disentangle education from capitalism, all is lost. (By @DarbyDelane)
- A simple leadership tip: Never miss an opportunity to let people know they’re doing things right. (By @ERobbPrincipal)
- You won’t enjoy every aspect of leadership but choose happiness every chance you get. MISERABLE LEADERS SPREAD MISERY Miserable leaders spread misery everywhere they go. Enjoy leading or get out of leadership. (By @Leadershipfreak)
