Most high school administrators, teachers, and staff concentrate on the student who is in the college preparatory track, while those who may not even finish high school have less attention paid to their curriculum and their educational needs. If the role of the school librarian is to prepare all students for lifelong learning, school librarians must work closely with teachers in charge of courses preparing students to go from school to work. They need to remind other teachers who are in general courses that many of the students in their classrooms who will not go to college, but will take jobs which pay them much more than the college graduate makes in many areas of the work force. This book points out the role of the school librarian in working with aIl the students and maps out the route to take to make this happen.
