Association of Teachers and Lecturers Calls for School Library Inspections

The Association of Teachers and Lecturers, the union representing education professionals in the United Kingdom, passed a motion calling for inspection of school libraries by the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills, citing reductions in library collections and decreasing library staff. The individual who proposed the motion stated:
“How can you have a school without a library? Libraries are a mirror of the societies in which we live and grow. Should that be forgotten, ignored or disregarded, then it will reflect badly on everything that is truly good about education in its widest sense.”
