I get angry with my colleagues that refuse to stand up fo themselves. Even when they are at a hearing to eliminate their job, many don’t defend the valuable work we do. In all fairness, it is hard to fight for money and a place at the decision-making table when you are constantly in fear of losing your job. Maybe we need a Friends group.
Advocacy for school libraries is hard work and requires planning and political savvy. We know what needs to be done but lack the influence to create action. Parents and community members have that influence.
