Duval County’s librarians were right, the sky was falling

Last spring librarians were saying they were being forced
out and the super assured them this was not true. I wrote at the time there was
a huge disconnect between what he was saying and what they were hearing. Well
friends it turns out the librarians were right and the sky was falling. 
There are 28 schools that had librarians last year that
don’t have them this year. There are two schools that didn’t have librarians
last year that have them this year. There is a slight up tick in librarians in
elementary schools though many just have them half time but in middle schools
and high schools they have been gutted.

And once again for a district with a reading problem and where
through the addition of common core writing and research  is going to become more critical it really is a shame.
