Did they make the right decision? A new study indicates that what they made was a big mistake!

    Are Librarians Really Worth It?
    First, what is a librarian? The word librarian or even library media specialist can be misleading. This is because we are not talking about somebody who is simply a 'librarian,' or a person who checks out, catalogs and shelves books all day. Neither is this discussion about a 'media specialist,' who would sit behind a desk offering advice to teachers about which tools they should use in their lessons. This question refers to the relative value of a "teacher-librarian." In addition to running a library, this person is a 'teacher,' who instructs as many periods a day as any regular classroom teacher. This teacher-librarian almost always has post-baccalaureate experience with solid classroom foundations. It is important to understand this as it relates to student achievement.
    What evidence supports having a teacher-librarian
    in an elementary school?
    Students who attend a school with a library and a teacher-librarian . . .
    • perform significantly better on tests for basic research skills. This includes locational skills, outlining and notetaking.

      Health Care Metrics Survey
      In January 2004, the Bernard Hodes Group released the results of a recent poll of 151 health care recruiters to determine turnover rates, cost-per-hire and vacancy rates for a range of health care professionals, including registered nurses. The survey found that the average RN turnover rate was 15.5%, the vacancy rate was 13.9% and the average RN cost-per-hire was $2,651, which is approximately 11% higher than the average cost for recruiting allied health workers. Is the Current Shortage of Hospital Nurses Ending In the November/December 2003 issue of Health Affairs, Dr. Peter Buerhaus from Vanderbilt University and his colleagues found that over 100,000 new RNs were hired in 2002; the majority of which were foreign-born nurses and nurses over age 50 returning to the workforce in tough economic times. Though the new hires and a sharp increase in RN salaries are having a positive effect on the current workforce supply, Dr. Buerhaus cautions that the current nursing shortage is far from over and called for immediate federal attention to address the growing crisis, including setting national goals for annual nursing school enrollment increases.

Intelligencer Home-school suit centers on religious freedom By BEN FINLEY The Intelligencer More than 50 Pennsylvania families who home school their children for religious reasons are using a little-known state law to force school districts out of the educational process. School districts tend to back off when parents cite Pennsylvania's recently passed Religious Freedom Protection Act, home schooling advocates say. But this year, school officials in Bristol Township and in western Pennsylvania have threatened to charge two of those families with truancy. The parents responded by suing them. Now, two lawsuits could test Pennsylvania's Religious Freedom Protection Act of 2002 and the state's home education law. The U.S. Constitution's First Amendment will also be in question in regards to home schooling in Pennsylvania, say home-schooling advocates. The underlying question is whether the state's home education regulations infringe upon the religious expression of families who home school their kids for religious reasons.
