School Libraries’ funding at risk for FY 2012

The House Education & Workforce Committee is scheduled to markup HR 1891 on Wednesday.   This bill would repeal a number of Department of Education programs that have been called “ineffective or unnecessary.”  This would include the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries (ILTSL) program, a source of federal funding exclusively for school libraries, despite the fact that it has been labeled successful in two separate evaluations.

Thank you for any advocacy efforts to get members of the House to sign on to the Dear Colleague letter in support of ILTSL.  Maryland has no members on the House Education & Workforce Committee, so there is no further action to take at this time.  For more information, see the District Dispatch posting.
