Support School Libraries NOW by signing
the ESEA petition!
Support School Libraries NOW. Sign the new White House petition about requesting funding and recognition for school libraries in the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. We know that school libraries make a difference in the lives of students. Now is the time for school librarians to show our strength to gain the support school libraries deserve. Library Media Connection supports Carl Harvey’s petition requesting support for school libraries because every child deserves access to a strong school library program. If 25,000 people or more sign the petition, it will reach the Obama administration. Do your part! Stand with LMC and sign the White House petition for strong school libraries at this link:
Use this as a real life advocacy lesson!
Anyone over the age 13 can sign this petition. That means high school and university students, teachers, and parents can show support by signing it. Here are some tools to help you explain it to them.
