New commission to look at the future of school libraries
January 29 2010
The Museum, Libraries and Archive Council has teamed up with the National Literacy Trust to launch a new commission that will examine the future of library provision in schools across England.
Between January and March, the commission will ask education professionals and local authorities to submit their ideas and views about the future of school libraries as part of a review that will look at their definition and role in the 21st century, Education Scholastic has reported.
Baroness Estelle Morris, who will chair the commission, said: "Libraries provide children with fantastic educational and social opportunities and the central aim of the commission is to look at ways to furnish school libraries with the very best support and advice."
In other news, schools in Oldham are taking part in an £800,000 scheme aiming to train new teachers to masters degree level, according to a local news report.
Teachers who only begun working this year can sign up for the government-funded masters in teaching and learning, the Oldham Evening Chronicle has reported.
