support your local librarian: part II

Permanent funding for librarians not coming from levy dollars? Sounds crazy enough to work.
[Rainier's Steve] Coker is set to testify today in support of Senate Bill 6380, which would provide state funding — $12 per student — for materials, and require a certain number of certified-teacher librarians based on the size of the district.
Hope that went well for you, Mr. Coker. In today's techno-climate, we need teacher-librarians--and a stable funding structure--more than ever.

I have worked with Steve Coker previously, and unfortunately his ideas were stifled by my district. Now that he has left, his voice is being heard. I miss working with Steve, but he's doing great things where he is.
