Thank you for your email regarding your current campaign to attain qualified teacher librarians in all schools. I do not require convincing of your stance as my wife is a former TL!

I have seen firsthand how teacher librarians bring support to teachers, complement the curriculum and develop both print and information literacy in a school. It is certainly concerning to see the decrease in numbers being trained, the attitude of ‘lack of value for money’ in some schools and States and the declining numbers of TL’s both currently and in the future.

You can be assured that I if elected I will place pressure on the government to complete the Inquiry into School Libraries and Teacher Librarians in Australian Schools and to act on the recommendations.

Yours faithfully
