Does a full-time school librarian make a critical difference ... more evidence

Does a full-time school librarian make a critical difference ... more evidence | School Library Digest | Scoop.it

Simply put, students suffer when they don’t have adequate resources—and, in particular, we’ve found that student achievement suffers when schools lack libraries that are staffed by full-time librarians. “Nearly every public school in Bucks, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties has a library with certified staff, which has been proven to increase student reading and comprehension,” notes Kintisch. “In contrast, most public schools in Philadelphia do not employ a certified librarian, and more than 140 do not have a library.”

We need to keep reading to keep learning in life.

Anita Vance's curator insight, April 15, 2013 3:14 PM

There is a definite need for guidance - finding the right material for the most effective learning does not "just happen".  So many schools are losing the advantages they could give struggling learners by opting to lessen or eliminate certified librarian positions.
