A new report from Democracy Ready NY advocates for media literacy in NYS.  The report recommends that:

  • All schools be staffed with school library media specialists, whose licensing requires extensive media literacy training.
  • All districts be required to provide access to professional development for teachers around media literacy.
  • The New York Board of Regents consider adding a dedicated one-semester course in media literacy for all ninth graders as part of its review of graduation requirements.
  • The state education department conduct a detailed survey to learn the current state of media literacy education and media literacy education resources in all schools.
