Read Buffy Hamilton’s (The Unquiet Librarian) powerful response (An Indecent Proposal) to the President’s failure to include funding in support of school libraries.  This failure to strengthen his recent official proclamation through specific action (and, in fact, mention!) is a blow to those of us who professionally support the President’s literacy initiatives in the field, integrated and day-by-day.  More than this, it misleads those who do NOT understand the new paradigm of literacy in a hyperconnected and information saturated society.
