colima KIDS NEED EDUCATION WE NEED A BETTER COUNTRy, WE NEED kids who can rule the country and by doing that students need their EDUCATION!!!! NO LAY OFFS
Adriana Bottom-liners like the Superintendents and School Board members should realize that, from a purely economical standpoint, closing LAUSD libraries is a BONEHEAD move. The combined costs of all the TLs & LAs don't begin to offset the MILLIONS of dollars of lost inventory stored in our libraries. Unmaintained books and other library resources WILL deteriorate. Per Ed Code 18121, "The governing board of a school district is accountable for the proper care and preservation of the school libraries..."
Tammie Celi Great job, Annette!!! Our kids need to read, not weep because their precious literary sanctuaries are closed! Thanks so much for this great statement!
Johanna G. fLoved the slideshow, Hopefully LAUSD can see how stupis they are if the cut off libraries. SAVE OUR LIBRARIES!!!!!!
colima Love the video. Dont kill our librarys please
Patty wow i love this video and don't disappoint us.
dgomez027 DONT CLOSE THE LIBRARIES BECAUSE ALL THE STUDENTS WILL BE DISAPPOINTED AND HURT BECAUSE A LOT OF US LIKE TO READ AND IF YOU CLOSE THE LIBRARIES HOW ARE WE SUPPOSE TO EXPAND OUR READING...DONT CLOSE THE LIBRARIES!
dgomez027 i think they should not close lausd libraries because how are kids goin to read books on different authors and expand their reading. Dont Close The Libraies! a lot of students will be disappointed because a lot of them LOVE to read...i love to read and it would suck if you close it!
Grant Great Video! Too bad it is based on such a sad cause.
Russell Love the video! Our schools NEED their libraries!
amy gomez It would suck if all LAUSD close down school libaries.
AnaR Woot for librarians! We need school libraries!!
Carlos Soto I like this video.its a big mistake for LAUSD to close down all LIBRARIES.
Sheilah Palacios Good job. Keep up the fight
Angel Rangel its an awesome video and is so true. it looked like a fun march too.
nilson I like it :-) I think it shows what we wanted and we are going to fight until the end...
luis like :) i think it shows that people would fight for what they want to keepit
- Christina Ramirez I still dont understand why the STUPIDintendent decided to take away a vital resource from students, ..... it just goes to show you that no one does anything for passion anymore, but for money,,
ascherr Students need School Libraries!
ascherr When I read about the way in which library funds are being cut and cut, I can only think that American society has found one more way to destroy itself." ~Isaac Asimov, autobiography
ascherr Deasy gets an $85,000 raise, Teachers get a Pink Slip
ascherr Invest in teachers, not tests!
Lance Wren How can students fall in love with reading without a place and a passionate person for literacy like a teacher librarian? How much will it cost our society in the future with this budget cut?
ascherr It makes no cents!
Sandy S. Bravo Annette!! I hope this goes viral.
Cynthia Lovely slideshow, Annette. Too bad California and LAUSD has squandered so much money in the past! Now there is nothing left for the essentials--difficult times!
Roger A great video created by teacher librarians who are being given axe while LAUSD continues to have the highest paid superintendent and the only television station in the country. Hmmm, which do you think contributes more to literacy?
Susan Ohanian Kudos! Kudos!
Pat Young Thanks, Annette, and all the teacher librarians for participating in the march. Hope this is just the beginning of getting the word out about access to the library!
ascherr School Librarians are Teachers Too!
ascherr If you love libraries please share this slideshow!
ascherr LAUSD TL's March in Solidarity on Saturday!
Edgar Lopez i think we should send this video ever where so people see how serious we are.
ascherr Libraries = Access for All!
Marie Slim Information Literacy is so necessary in the Information Age! Teacher Librarians teach information access, evaluation and ethical use. In addition, Teacher Librarians PROTECT our children by teaching Digital Literacy and Cybersafety. They also teach our students to be independent life-long learners and readers and thinkers. LAUSD is cutting a great resource off at its knees.
Guillermo D. I don't think its fair to judge a library as an uneeeded resource just because a few kids choose not to read. If this video is viewed and not dismissed i know its message can be spread.
Rebecca V Very true! This is a big issue that needs to be more recognized, and it's a great video. It flows well and libraries are extremely important to people of all ages. Books open peoples minds. More appreciation needs to be shown.
Susan Ball That was wonderful! Thank you so much. Saturday was great & I hope someone heard us all...
Joan Kramer Brilliant video slide show! I think we should send it everywhere we can!! Great job!!
-Tiare S. This is a great video! Go teachers and librarians! Without you guys we couldn't be called students! I'm so proud of you for working hard for our education and i extremely support you! Let's be done with layoffs, budget cutts, and unlogical decisions from LAUSD!
