Media Specialists in California School District to Be Let Go

Library media specialists are among employees of the Calaveras Unified School District who are to be laid off next year. Students, teachers, a principal, and the union spokesperon have all spoken out against the elimination of the media specialist positions, with one student stating:
The main thing I want to address is the sheer fact that our librarian is just as important as the library itself. To some of us, that library is a second home and the librarian an ear open to listen.
Some schools within the school district are already operating without a media specialist.
