Good article on school librarian

There's a great profile in the New York Times of a very successful middle-school librarian -- do check it out. The author sets this librarian's innovations (integrating into the curriculum by being proactive with classroom teachers; embracing and training kids to use technology) against countervailing budgetary forces. The article had a couple of telling statistics:
  • More than 90 percent of American public schools have libraries, but less than two-thirds employ full-time certified librarians.
  • On average, a school librarian gets $12.06 per student per year to spend on books.
