How Pennsylvania School Libraries Pay Off: Investments in Student Achievement and Academic Standards

This is the complete research report by Keith Curry Lance and Bill Schwarz called How Pennsylvania School Libraries Pay Off: Investments in Student Achievement and Academic Standards.  The study consists of three phases of research: 

n  An analysis of available data about Pennsylvania school libraries and their relationships to the 2011 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) Reading and Writing scores

n  An analysis of survey data about the perceptions of school library programs of administrators, teachers, and librarians and the relationships between those perceptions and their assessments of library program teaching of 21st Century Learner and PA/Common Core standards, and, in turn, the relationships between educators’ assessments of library program teaching of those two sets of standards and PSSA scores

n  Estimated investments needed to fund those components of a 21st century school library infrastructure that would have the greatest impact on student achievement in Pennsylvania
