I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit.
We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Linda, I was wondering if you could connect me with someone who is running an Intern Programme in a school? This would be organizing students studying for their Education Degree, but in a school. I am doing research on this Programme and would be most grateful for any links/info etc as I would like to do a chapter on Comparative Internships internationally ie.what has worked and what has not etc. Hope you are well?
