"We realized that the school libraries are hemorrhaging, and it was far worse than we ever imagined," said Layera Brunkan.

Parents' group tries to stop demise of the school librarian in Seattle.

Bill Richardson the only presidential candidate in either party who has consistently addressed education issues has now dropped out of the race. Those of us who care about our children, their education, and one of our greatest national treasures-- our free public and school libraries-- need to speak up. All presidential candidates need to know that education is as big a priority to us as national security or health care. What is happening in Seattle is happening all across the country, and in many areas schools, and school and public libraries, are in much worse shape than Seattle.

Take a moment and contact the presidential candidates, as well as your political party, and let them know that you want them to start talking about our children and their education, NOW!
