The Case of The Missing Librarian
My daughter attends 4th grade in Independent School District #13 at a school called Highland Elementary.
Highland Elementary, like the other two elementary schools in this district, no longer has a school librarian.
Ooops, I mean MEDIA SPECIALIST. Whatever.
Pretty soon, there won’t be paper books, either, as the district’s nebulous plan is to somehow give all the kids iPads and then they will magically know how to read and find everything they might need to learn about ever, without help, except there are Technology Teachers now, I guess, who ‘integrate technology’ and also some lady from Scholastic, who will somehow ‘assist’ in purchasing decisions for books – hmm, I wonder from what publisher she will purchase e-books? – which will make all our students 21st Century Citizens, you see, hallelujah, world without end.
I emailed the superintendent about this last week. Waiting on her sure-to-be-scintillating reply.
