Is school librarianship in crisis and should we be talking about it?

Is school librarianship in crisis and should we be talking about it? | School Learning Library | Scoop.it

While teacher librarians and school library services continue to adapt to the needs of their students and school community in response to student learning needs, the future is not always rosy. We have been given comprehensive evidence that in Australia there is indeed a crisis in school librarianship, and that we need to be talking about it.

Teacher librarians crucial in info age

Teacher librarians crucial in info age | School Learning Library | Scoop.it

We stand at the crossroads of two futures for Australian children. The first sees them navigating an increasingly interconnected world as savvy consumers and producers of information who are capable of critically assessing what they read, see and hear. The second sees many of them as simplistic, non-discerning searchers probably plagiarising much of what they produce, easy prey for those who wish to fool them.

What is the best way to ensure the first scenario? Make sure we have enough teacher librarians in our schools.

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.
