In this election year, the timeframe is all too short. SUBMISSIONS MUST BE IN BY APRIL 16. Nevertheless this is our opportunity for the federal government to look at possible recommendations on school library funding and staffing, the first review since the 1970s.

Terms of Reference
To inquire into and report on the role, adequacy and resourcing of school libraries and teacher librarians in Australia’s public and private schools.
