In Wisconsin, state officials have given Milwaukee Public Schools 14 months to ensure that every school library is overseen by a licensed librarian – something that has not been happening at about three dozen MPS schools.

The Department of Public Instruction on Monday released results of its investigation of a 2-year-old complaint from the Milwaukee teachers union that many schools were violating rules calling for schools to use certified librarians.”
