School librarian cuts survey

School districts nationwide are cutting back on librarians while their job description is expanding, with a new focus on digital literacy and on closing the divide for students who do not have access to technology at home, according to the American Association of School Librarians. Data from the National Center for Education Statistics show one-third of public schools do not employ a full-time, state-certified librarian, and 20% of public-school libraries don't have a full- or part-time certified librarian.
