An Assessment of Educational Resources in the Schools of Prince Edward Island.
Saleemi, A. Hamid
The survey is the first comprehensive study of the library and audio-visual services in the schools of Prince Edward Island (PEI). The survey does not include any of the one or two-room schools as they do not have libraries (45% of the schools are one or two-room). The survey considers only the quantitative aspects of library collections and makes no attempt to assess the quality of these book stocks. PEI is currently planning for the consolidation of the school districts. It is unrealistic to bring the libraries of all small schools to a certain standard, however, large schools should not wait for consolidation. At the completion of the consolidation all large and medium schools should receive capital grants to equip them with basic library collections in two to four years. In addition, a minimum annual grant per student and per teacher should be instituted to take care of the annual subscriptions and growth of library materials. (Author)
