I’m a Duval County high school teacher. We have no librarian. The librarian is teaching classes.
Our students cannot check out books, and cannot use the Internet to research at school.
Many students do not have the Internet at home, and do not live near a library. The school library is the only resource they have, and Nikolai Vitti has taken it away from them.
Dr. Vitti may have some good ideas, but he is extremely pigheaded and has everyone scared to death for their jobs if they’re not a yes-man to anything he says.
So he plods forward with everything, whether or not it makes any sense.
No matter who you are, if you’re closing all the high school libraries, there is something wrong with the budget.
