Closing school libraries? This means war | Editor's Note | News and Opinion | Philadelphia Weekly | School libraries are your common core! | Scoop.it

And so finally it's come to this: The Philadelphia School District has closed its top schools' libraries due to the budget crisis. Only 15 librarians remain in the entire district, where enrollment has already climbed past last year's 150,000 students. As the Inquirerreported today, principals at Central High and Masterman are scrambling to figure out how exactly they're supposed to give students an education without being able to give them books to read.

In this piece, written by a parent who was motivated to stand up to a charter school takeover attempt in her small town, is well written. My favorite nugget is this: "The current state of the Philadelphia school system should serve as a testament to the fact that the last decade of corporate reform has left the majority of Philadelphia's public school children without the resources they need to succeed. Without a doubt, it is time for a more balanced approach." Indeed...they are shutting down their school libraries due to budget cuts in Philadelphia. Anybody want to venture a guess as to how many football teams have been disbanded? Basketball teams? Coach salaries? I don't know for a fact that those areas have been untouched but historical data would tell us that the corporate reformers see a profit in sports and none in library resources...

Public school libraries have always served an admirable purpose in education. It is not enough to simply "be there;" school libraries need to reach out to students and pull them in with helpful resources that combine traditional and contemporary theories in literacy.
