Musing Mondays.

This week’s musing asks…
The local Catholic school board is closing its school libraries, and parents and teachers –and even the students– are in an uproar. Budget cuts demanded that the board choose something to get rid of… they choose libraries. As such, many librarians have lost their jobs. And, the board is moving the books to the classrooms, instead. They feel that it is a good solution.What do you think? Should the schools be without an actual “library” room? Is this a good solution?

hell no!
I think this is a rediculous Idea, i was never much of a reader in high school but i spent alot of my time in the library.
When i got asigntments and stuff i did not have resouces at home and i could not get to the town library so i had to use the school library.
if this is going to be the coming trend in schools these days, How do those kids who do not quite fit in in the "playground" going to cope. Not to mention those of us who just generally enjoy the library.
I know schools are doing it tough every where, but i think that people should look at other cost cuting ideas. getting rid of the library puts people out of a job, seriously get rid of a football team, the PE teachers will still have a job weather the football teams are there or not.
I think if this situation was in Australia i would be rioting, haha.

What do you think?

  1. I completely agree, take from something else but leave the library!

    Thanks for commenting ;]

  2. Behind you 100% schools should look for smaller things to cut to make big differences. Taking away the libraries makes books seem un-important. Grrrr, this makes me mad!

  3. Yup, I'd be rioting also.

    Here's mine:

  4. Remember, these are schools that ARE NOT GETTING TAX DOLLARS, but must support themselves.
    In many urban area, the local Catholic school (and I am a product of an urban Catholic school)is the safest, best alternative. And money is always a big issue. Can parents pay more, can teachers be paid less? If not, then terrible choices have to be made sometimes...sad but true.

  5. Making budget cuts are always hard and unfortunately, always affect many.
