Interesting research on reading interventions targeted at specific student special education group. Wonder is a similar project could be collected for freshmen students?

Andrea Ange's comment, February 3, 2013 10:12 AM

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | School Library Journal

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | School Library Journal | Next Gen Librarianship | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders. Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important. That’s great news, considering only 65 percent of librarians in the study thought their bosses would recognize the valuable role we play.
