With so much data to support the critical role a librarian plays in the direct education of students, I believe it is unacceptable that our district has allowed 11 Dallas ISD schools to lose their librarians because of budget cuts. As your District 2 Trustee, I would support school librarians knowing the value they bring to our schools and our students. When necessary, I would look for budget cuts on the administrative side rather than the instructional side of our District, so that we may continue to support the direct education of our children.
