Jane Lofton (librarian) responds to this blog entry, and I thought I’d try to “amplify” her voice:

Dear Miguel, I applaud your message to the next administration but would appreciate it if you would include the need for strong school libraries and trained library staff in your future communications.

In schools that have a credentialed librarian, the librarian is one of the key champions and mentors for the use of technology both in the library and throughout the school. With proper federal and state support for school libraries, every school would have a trained librarian championing technology in the school.

Grateful for Library Champions!
