Students living in poverty attend poor schools with no arts, no full curriculum, many unqualified and underprepared teachers, and no school libraries due to lack of funding. If these schools do have libraries, many do not employ certified librarians. Without a qualified librarian, children do not have proper exposure to books. The main issue Right to Read exposes is that not all children have access to quality literacy resources, and good school libraries with certified librarians
are the cure.
