Two years ago, the Chicago Public Schools budgeted for 454 librarians. Last year, the budget called for 313 librarians, and now that number is down to 254.

With educators facing tough financial choices, having a full-time librarian is becoming something of a luxury in Chicago’s more than 600 public schools.

BBB is being completely disingenuous with her statement that the “[hiring] pool is diminished”. If it seems like there aren’t enough interested librarians it’s because 1. CPS has a complicated and stupid hiring process and it’s not easy to get into the “Teacher Quality Pool” and 2. The existing school librarians were either pushed out or reassigned to classroom instruction. 

The sad fact is that with CPS’ per-pupil budgeting, anything considered “nonessential” is probably not going to get funded and unlike PE or Art (both of which I completely and totally support for all students), there are no mandated set of required hours for Library instruction.
