Throwing the baby out with the bathwater

1. No, the internet does not mean we no longer need teacher-librarians – see the comments, as well as the following article, that discusses how some Principals think the internet makes school libraries and library staff redundant (have they used the internet for research?) – and yes we have some bad teacher-librarians, as well as bad Principals, bad English teachers, bad Maths teachers, etc- but that does not mean it is a good idea to sack ALL – teacher-librarians, Principals, Maths teachers, English teachers, politicians, lawyers, bankers, stock analysts etc (except in some schools of the USA at the moment, apparently, where sacking all teachers is actually happening. (School sacks all teachers )
