Principals don't get it and school librarians are paying the price

From the Montreal Gazette:
While governments say librarians are necessary to teach the skills needed to navigate today's information environment, schools aren't hearing the message, a report released Monday suggests.

And that misunderstanding has led to cuts in school-library programs that could decrease student achievement and harm Canada's ability to build a knowledge-based economy, says People for Education, an Ontario-based, parent-led education agency.
