This Is A National Crisis
As such with a critical shortage of school librarians in 47 out of the 50 states in these United States, shouldn't the laws be changed therein allowing public MLS librarians, who are graduates of American Library Association accredited institutions to work in the school libraries. Isn't that a reasonable step that can immediately be taken to help ameliorate this national crisis in the shortage of school librarians? Don't we as library professionals have a fiduciary responsibility to foster this type of a reasonable discussion within our profession? Please voice your opinions. Please remember there are no right or wrong opinions here, and we should all be tolerant of differing opinions within the big tent of the profession of librarianship.
