Blink and you might have missed it, but during Library and Information Week, The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Education and Employment released a report on school libraries and teacher librarians in Australia’s public and private schools. The media release for the report explains that
The report investigates the issues of role, adequacy and resourcing of school libraries and teacher librarians in Australia. The report focuses on the impact of government policies and investments on school libraries, the potential of school libraries and teacher librarians to contribute to improved educational outcomes, and the recruitment and development of teacher librarians. The 163‐page report also looks at partnering and supporting school libraries and teacher librarians with other libraries.
