Alice writes If only.... based on dissatisfaction with the recent SLJ Summit. The person running the Virtual Summit Blog is not a librarian, which shouldn't be an impediment, but is only because she doesn't seem to get it. What "it"? The "it" that spells out who we are and what we do, and how. It's like we - school librarians and school libraries - are a foreign concept to her and she's trying to educate us about ourselves.
It would be great if Alice's dream came true. The question is, who could coordinate such a meeting? Bill Gates and George Lucas claim to be involved with education, but it seems that they want to determine the course, not let the people in the trenches do it. I guess visionaries don't care what practitioners know.
If you know anyone that could help - drop them a note and point them to her post. Couldn't hurt!
