Dept of Education eliminates funding for school libraries in FY 2011

The Department of Education had 30 days to finalize their budget allocation.  The report released on May 16th indicates that funding for the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries (ILTSL) program was zeroed out for the rest of FY 2011.  This eliminates the sole source of federal funding for school libraries and a means to provide students with up-to-date books and technology, as well as certified school librarians.  For more information, please see the District Dispatch posting.
