NEA will consider a new policy statement on the fundamental right of every student to receive the services of a fully certificated library media specialist in a fully funded school library. 

Rationale/Background

School libraries help schools meet their mission of each student learning and achieving academic success. Library programs help teachers teach and students learn; promote information literacy and digital citizenship; and help foster a love for reading and life-long learning.
