School libraries and teacher-librarians: evidence of their contribution to student literacy and learning

School libraries have the potential to be a vibrant hub for learning, information, reading promotion, creativity, student leadership and social interaction within their school community. From an equity perspective, the school library is one of few places in a school open to all students, teachers and parents. In addition to providing a congenial learning environment and ‘safe haven’, the school library often offers a venue for extra-curricular activities, as well as school community events and meetings.

Trump Can't Stop the Energy Revolution

Trump Can't Stop the Energy Revolution | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The planet is warming, dangerously so, and burning more coal will make it worse. President-elect Donald Trump thinks man-made climate change is a hoax, and he's promised to revive the U.S. coal industry by cutting regulation. So renewables are dead in the water, right? Maybe not.
