I have to register my horror at what is happening in LA schools. In a effort to cut spending, the LA Unified Schools District (LAUSD) is closing school libraries and trying to get rid of the librarians too. If they haven’t taught in the classroom in the last five years, they are making teacher librarians face a court to prove they have actually been ‘teaching’ while doing their job.
One wonderfully articulate teacher librarian tells her story on her blog http://mizzmurphy.blogspot.com/. And remember, she’s not a double agent in Russia, or a dissident in China – she’s a teacher librarian in the so-called land of the free.
Read it and weep.
