American Jobs Act includes funds for school libraries

The President’s American Jobs Act (AJA) has now been introduced in the Senate as S 1549.  Although the text of the bill is not yet available, it is expected to include $30 billion in funds for K-12 education, with part of the money allocated to public school renovation projects and the other part to education jobs.  Last week, the District Dispatch announced that the American Library Association confirmed that these funds could be used for other education professionals, including school librarians.  For more information about this good news, see the District Dispatch posting.
