There\’s a story
here, about school libraries in California that have been forced into the hall,
the auditorium, and other odd places.
They say due to booming enrollment and state-mandated class-size reduction,
there is just no room for the library any more. They go so far as to say
\”The traditional school library is obsolete in Simi Valley\”!
The article says \”Library-media center facilities at every one of the
district\’s 20 elementary campuses fail to meet the state recommendation of
2,250 square feet for every 650 students.\”
This is in Simi Valley, CA.
Is this common else where? It\’s the first I\’ve heard of it.
