These are the Top 10 tweets shared in the past week.
- Varied denominations agree time and again. Christians have a moral duty to support our local public schools. (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Privatizers and libertarians hate the moral argument for public education. They can’t stand it because moral law and biblical justice dictate that ALL children receive a quality education. That will never happen by the private interest. It can only happen by the public. (By @pastors4txkids)
- TEA Commissioner Morath tells Evan Smith that for the vast majority of students virtual learning is an inferior learning environment. Full time virtual school is, and has been, bad for almost all kids. Why would we permanently expand access that hurts the vast majority of kids? (By @ATPE_MontyE)
- In the “school choice” myth, money doesn’t follow the child. Rather, money follows the marketer who monetizes the child. At taxpayer expense. At McDonalds, money for a “Happy Meal” doesn’t “follow the child.” It follows McDonalds. Unhealthy food marketed and available everywhere. (By @pastors4txkids)
- Too often undervalued, under-utilized and misunderstood, students desperately need social workers to help them deal with COVID, the storm, and trauma in all its manifestations. (By @HoustonCVPE)
- Students aren’t behind and teachers aren’t failing them. The public is simply trying to measure swimming for speed in the middle of a hurricane. (By @DrBradJohnson)
- Solve drama. Don’t create it. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- The “business” approach to public education is fundamentally misguided. Children cannot be educated by a cost-effective, market-driven, competition-oriented approach. They are children. Not commodities. They are only properly educated by the public trust. (By @pastors4txkids)
- Leaders who sweep issues under the carpet are doomed to lead stagnant, ineffective, inefficient organizations. Leaders who don’t confront negative issues propagate negativity. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- About 40% of the nation’s coronavirus deaths could have been prevented if the United States’ average death rate matched other industrialized nations, a new Lancet Commission report has found. (By @tgrierhisd)
