Jersey Jazzman: Boo-Friggin'-Hoo

Jersey Jazzman: Boo-Friggin'-Hoo

Last week a story that originally aired on News10 in Stockton, California caught my eye. I was not the only one to pounce on the clip about the alleged Department of Education's S.W.A.T. Kenneth Wright had his door destroyed at approximately 6 AM. The story also sparked an curious response from a reader.

June 15, 2011 9:00 am - The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is having serious budget problems. There is a a section on district web site that shows a chart of how they spend the money. One of the LAUSD solutions is the closing of elementary and middle school libraries.

Most of the library staff have received layoff notices. Senior high school libraries will remain open for the present time.

There is a ignorant persistent cultural murmur about we have the Internet now, so we don’t need educated book pullers anymore. So that we are on common ground, please watch this video about what 21st-century school librarians actually do for K-12 students.

School librarians or teacher librarians in California are dual credentialed. This means these are teachers with a library certification,
