The session was very valuable and informative. We must lift our voices so everyone will know that school libraries do positively impact student achievement. Participants at the session offered the following suggestion:
Request that the CEOs of major corporations headquartered in the Atlanta area, such as Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, Home Depot, etc. write letters and emails of support to elected officials and the Georgia Department of Education requesting funding to support school library programs and school librarians/media specialists in the state of Georgia. Additionally, parents, professional athletes and local celebrities would make excellent voices in our choir!
