Using the analogy of teaching a student to drive, this article makes some great points about the teaching of digital citizenship. I think the inference is also for secondary.

School Library Monthly - Research that Resonates: Influencing Stakeholders”

School Library Monthly - Research that Resonates: Influencing Stakeholders” | Libraries | Scoop.it
“ The library profession has strong evidence that students in schools with good school libraries learn more, achieve academic standards, and score higher on standardized tests than students in schools without school libraries and librarians. School librarians must seize the charge to use this body of research and master "messaging" strategies to create library advocates among school and community stakeholders and, hopefully, one or two school library champions.”

Senseless decision making based on cost cutting "But school principals, who make the hiring decisions, will then be free to choose not to hire a librarian in order to cut costs."  I endorse what Sara Johns has to say.  “Having a school librarian who deals with every person in the school is pretty cost effective,” Sara Johns, president of the New York Library Association, said. “It’s kind of shortsighted to say that you’re saving money by eliminating that position.” Yes, very, very shortsighted.
