Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal

Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal | School Librarians Teach 21st Century Skills! | Scoop.it
CASL's insight:

"This study adds to the evidence that all K–12 students need and deserve quality school library programs with full-time certified staff. Students are more likely to succeed when they have library programs that are well staffed, well funded, technologically well equipped, well stocked, and more accessible. And, the neediest learners may benefit the most from trained librarians and quality library programs."
