    To quote the article, “However, fewer schools now have librarians, who traditionally taught research skills.”

    Dingdingdingding!!! I have my MLIS degree (that’s Masters in Library and Information Sciences), and the cutting back on school librarians was a big topic while I was in school a few years ago.

    And since going to libraries outside of school is something that is not overly encouraged by many parents (I was shocked at the number of parents who would go shopping at the Waldenbooks I worked at for their kids’ paper references instead of going to the library), children don’t get taught media literacy other places.
