Latest study confirms that school libraries positively impact student test scores

Well what do you know –  another study, this this time from the South Carolina Association of School Librarians, confirms once again that schools with vibrant libraries and librarians make a difference.  A big difference.

Test scores and reading levels are higher and the chance of long-term academic success is greatly improved when a school boasts a healthy library.

The evidence continues to mount yet schools all over this land are still struggling to even have a library. 

It wasn’t too long ago when we featured the tragic plight of the Philadelphia public schools where more than 80% of the schools lack a functioning library!

We have to do better, in fact we need to have a zero tolerance approach when it comes to schools without a library.
