Staffing levels will be increasing in Pennsylvania school libraries for the 2015-2016 school year. It seems like I'm finally seeing more good news about school libraries these days!
Three years ago, 100 school librarian positions were eliminated in Pennsylvania. The Department of Education is rethinking this decision thanks to persuasive testimonies from parents, students, and others in the community. I'm so glad to know that others are taking a stand for school libraries.
So far, the state of Kentucky has been fortunate to keep a certified librarian in every school. The unfortunate part is that many districts are starting to split librarians between two (or more) schools, but that's more of the exception than the rule in my part of the state.
