“What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it feels about education.” ~Harold Howe
Another victim of our recent district budget reductions (check your local blogs and news outlets for specific information) is our library budget. According to the most recent notification, our library budget for next year has been reduced to zero. After thinking about how to respond to that predicament, I realized others have already said it better.
Doug Johnson, Director of Libraries and Technology in the Mankato (MN) Schools, offered this to consider about library resources: The Blue Skunk Blog.
We need to consider how we will continue to meet the future expectations of Common Core State Standards in respect to literacy. Doug’s writings will certainly give us ideas to ponder and consider.
