- About the Author
As Gail Bush reports, "each section of this monograph includes articles that invite the reader to explore his or her own response to the authors' messages... The purpose here is not to set in stone principles and practices to be followed blindly but to present a disposition toward intellectual behaviors that seriously consider our responsibilities and actions as educators in a democratic society." And Ms. Bush has pulled articles to do just that from Knowledge Quest, AASL's official, highly respected journal on school library media programs. You will find topics addressing the big picture of civic engagement, equity, democracy, and social justice, and of course best practices.
