Bfarn sez, “I don’t know if you’ve been following the Los Angeles Unified School District’s witch hunt, but they’ve been trying to lay off their entire staff of librarians. They’ve been conducting McCarthy-esque trials, forcing teacher-librarians to defend both their personal worth and their district-defined credentials. One brave teacher has been blogging about the experience (as retweeted by Neil Gaiman!) and was singled out by LAUSD lawyers for her efforts. They won, and lost their best teacher in the process.”
