President’s FY 13 Budget includes little support for literacy

The President’s FY 13 budget proposal released on Monday contains very little support for literacy. Support was reduced for the Fund for Improvement of Education (FIE), which provides books, technology services and critical learning programs to at-risk children. The Improving Literacy Through School Libraries (ILTSL) program has again been consolidated with five other literacy programs to compete for funding. See the District Dispatch post for a statement from the American Library Association President Molly Raphael.
