Back in December we read Jennifer Radcliffe's article in the Houston Chronicle regarding the poor condition of many HISD school libraries in terms of their book stock, staffing, and facilities (when present). Folks wrote letters in support of school libraries. (It turns out that poor libraries equal poor achieving students. Golly, who'd guessed?)
This February we've been blessed by learning that a high HISD official has described the state standards for school libraries as "Cadillac" standards. When such starkly inaccurate statements are made one wonders, is the person just ignorant, inveigling for bureaucratic purposes, or what?
If you want a fact sheet to the contrary from willstexana, just ask.
