Judith Ridge posted about this on Facebook. Parliament is holding hearings into Australian teacher-librarians.
I personally can't imagine the hearings would need to go for long. My transcript.
Parliamentary Person: So, teacher-librarians are pretty ace, then?
Everone in Australia: Yep.
Parliamentary Person: Well, that's all right then. Let us shower school libraries with buckets of cash for books and reading programs and author visits. And new technology.
Everyone in Australia: Hurrah!
Parliamentary Person: Oh, and while we're at it, annual holidays to Paris and foot massage vouchers for all teacher-librarians as well.
Everyone in Australia: Huzzah!
Parliamentary Person: Any other questions?
Everone in Australia: Well, we really loved reading Harry Potter and Keys to the Kingdom, what else do you recommend?
Parliamentary Person: No idea. Go home.
People of Australia: Boo!
The real terms of reference and transcripts are available at the House Standing Committe on Education and Training in the link above. The next hearings are on 13 May at Parliament House in Canberra. (I nearly forgot to write 'Canberra' because that is where I am, but you are probably not.)
Incidentally, one of the things I find endearing about Canberra is the fact that quite a lot of Real Adults walk around along footpaths reading from novels as if it is perfectly normal. They never seem to get run over while crossing the road, which is also nice.
