Latest Study: A full-time school librarian makes a critical difference in boosting student achievement | School Library Journal | Linking Libraries & Learning | Scoop.it

Simply put, students suffer when they don’t have adequate resources—and, in particular, we’ve found that student achievement suffers when schools lack libraries that are staffed by full-time librarians. “Nearly every public school in Bucks, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties has a library with certified staff, which has been proven to increase student reading and comprehension,” notes Kintisch. “In contrast, most public schools in Philadelphia do not employ a certified librarian, and more than 140 do not have a library.”

Kieth Curry Lance's decade long research studies established (beyond any doubt) that a professionally staffed library is essential for student achievement. It never hurts to be shown the obvious truth (over and over again).


When will the decision makers stop the lip service and pay attention to the research? School Libraries and Librarians WORK!
