It says one day a week that kids will get media, hey that sounds great to me, a weekly visit to the library, a media specialist doing a read aloud or putting on some other program. GREAT!
Um except a reader pointed out to me, that their school only has media every other week.
Another pointed out that in the bigger elementary schools there are more classes than could be seen in a week unless they doubled up classes .
So I wondered what happened when their was no media specialist available and was told schools are supposed to come up with a plan.
Why am I skeptical that this is working well for anybody?
But you know what I could be wrong and if I am please let me know.
Finally I would like to say, the way the district has treated its media specialists since Vitti arrived has been criminal. Librarians are some of the last people that should go in a district that has a reading problem. I wonder why they weren’t financed by the QEA or why instead of dropping our budget 40 million dollars nobody said, hmm you know what, lets get some librarians in there.
