Shifts, Chapter 31: Living Memory, pt. 2

Ah, canon scene. Dialogue with Harry comes from JKR, of course. Less of it was summarizable than is usually the case with pilfered dialogue! Almost the whole scene is intact because Remus had to have the words to respond to. I feel most guilty about this, and will rectify with more original scenes later.

Remus was reading a book and making notes on a sheet of parchment when he looked down to find Harry's head in the fire.

Libraries and education

feylin17 asked for a rant about education, specifically from a library perspective.

Education. Everyone has different ideas about it and there are SO MANY ways the public education system is not right in this country. That or the role of parents in education, or how teachers are being fired if their students dont pass the proficency (even though the test is for what they leared the years before with different teachers.), or the whole evolution/creationism debate. Or anything really. I'm a science teacher in Ohio so I've seen pretty much all the ways things are wrong.
I'm giving you this rant because i have never had this discussion with a librarian(sp) and I know that your profession has a stake in education. I'm interested to hear what you think about all of this.
