From Washington: House Re-Introduces SKILLs Act Emphasizing Role of School Librarians

From the ALA's District Dispatch Blog:

The Strengthening Kidsí Interest in Learning and Libraries Act, or the SKILLs Act, was re-introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives this week with support from both sides of the aisle. This legislation is intended to ensure that all students will have the support and resources they need for a quality education by establishing a goal that all public school libraries employ no less than one highly qualified school library media specialist.

H.R. 3928 was introduced by Representatives Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) and Vernon Ehlers (R-MI-3) and was referred to the House Education and Labor Committee.

The post continues with info about SKILLs Act legislation during the 110th Congress in 2007.
