SF public school libraries don’t go by the book

“If you asked San Francisco teacher-librarian Lisa Bishop, she could write a book on the importance of public schools staffing full-time librarians. Though considered by many to be a staple in a child’s education, full-time librarians are being hired by fewer and fewer public schools in California each year for at least the past decade. In fact, California has the worst ratio of teacher-librarians to students in the U.S., including Puerto Rico, said Rachelle Resnick, the San Francisco Unified School District’s program administrator for library services.” (via San Francisco Examiner)
