Official Event

Why is the Largest Classroom in the School Empty?
MAR 5, 2019 | 11:00AM – 12:00PM
AUSTIN CONVENTION CENTER
ROOM 12AB

With the change from No Child Left Behind to ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act, the role of school librarians and effective school library programs are integrated into federal education policy. This needs to be extended to state education plans and school district practice.

Numerous studies show that school library programs staffed by certified school librarians have a significant positive impact on student achievement. SXSW EDU is an important national education technology forum, and we want to challenge and inspire educational leaders and policymakers to re-incorporate library programs and librarians into the life of their schools. 

Join Kafi Kumasi, Allison Mackley, John Chrastka, and Azadeh Jamalian for a discussion of policy recommendations on how to improve student learning outcomes, increase equity, and enhance PD while leveraging grant and federal funding through libraries.

Please see the official listing for this panel on the SXSW EDU site for up to date information.
