How does your school stack up against this list? It is one person's view. Even though it may be a bit confronting for some it is worth considering that maybe hanging onto the 'sacred cows' is actually limiting the opportunities you can provide your students.

Shannon Englebrecht, who works for the San Francisco Unified School District, is poised to become one of a rare breed in California when her hours are increased next year: a full-time public school librarian.

gwynethjones's curator insight, May 29, 6:23 AM

"The lack of certified librarians has led to a decrease in student access to books, a decline in student research skills and the loss of an important resource for teachers, said Janice See-Gilmore, president of the California School Library Association.

“It’s actually pretty dreadful,” See-Gilmore said. “In 1999 we had 1,300 teacher librarians. We’re just going in the wrong direction.”
