Charter Ghost Schools: Money for Nothing | For Librarians | Scoop.it

If you want something to make your blood boil, read this scathing blog post about Charter Schools and the huge amount of profits they are scamming off the taxpayer (ahem, that's you and me) for non-existent students. Is it any wonder why there is little money left for school librarians?

School Library Impact Studies | Keith Curry Lance | For Librarians | Scoop.it
Keith’s latest research on the impact of school libraries and librarians is being pursued on several fronts: a major, federally-funded, statewide study in Pennsylvania; and a Colorado replication of a national study that documents the impact of the Great Recession and its aftermath on school library staffing and thereby on students’ reading scores. - See more at: http://keithcurrylance.com/school-library-impact-studies/#sthash.XODVRigp.dpuf

This would make a wonderful poster to have in a media center to help teachers get up to speed on all the techie lingo. There is even a link at the bottom of the article that will allow you to download the poster for free. Enjoy!

Love this!  Will download the poster and put it on the wall next to all the other "must-have" info I have posted there already.

 

Of course, I'll have to change out this poster in about 2 months!

There are some interesting ideas here that some of you may be able to use. I can't help but wonder as I read this article if the push for more access in schools is simply to continue to feed the online testing monster. How do we change the conversation to access for student LEARNING not testing?
