Librarians Rock - RIP
In an age of information overload Librarians are the pilots who can help us quickly navigate to what is meaningful.
Said differently - librarian's rock and they make a huge difference in schools. Here is a video made by a school for a library aid who got laid off due to the budget crisis. Think this "saving" won't make a big difference in the education of these children?
Watch the video.
Yes - she is my lovely wife. She will find new work, but this work resonated with her soul and she was damn good at it. Thousands of young learners are better off because they crossed paths with her.
She and thousands of other educators who were dedicated and loved by their students will not be there in the fall when school reopens.
Think about that the next time someone bashes teachers to make political hay.
