Keep your eye on the Education Reporter of the Vancouver Sun who has asked for feedback regarding the Education Minister George Abbott needing to fund school libraries to help the province’s target of imporving reading abilities of K-3 students in BC schools.
This is the perfect invitation for BC teacher librarians to provide this reporter with loads of local evidence of the imapct of their school library program on students’ reading levels and literacy scores.
Many schools have this evidence, the TL just needs to ‘do something’ with the data.
