00:00 - 00:03This school year we will be
00:04 - 00:05consolidating ISR and all
00:05 - 00:07study halls into the media center
00:08 - 00:12This will allow us to keep all
00:12 - 00:15students in one central location
00:17 - 00:19But will the media center be
00:19 - 00:21large enough to hold them all?
00:24 - 00:26Um... well....
00:27 - 00:28there is one option
00:31 - 00:33We will have to close down the magazine room
00:34 - 00:36and place the ISR students there
00:53 - 00:58Time... Cosmo... Rolling Stone....
01:13 - 01:15This is unacceptable! How do we
01:15 - 01:17have a media center without a
01:18 - 01:23periodical room full of forty year old
01:25 - 01:28Jet, Seventeen, and
01:29 - 01:31Good Housekeeping magazines?
01:31 - 01:34One day somebody might need
01:34 - 01:37our media center specialist to find
01:37 - 01:40the March 1973 issue of Vibe
01:40 - 01:42We are not going to rehire our media center specialist
01:42 - 01:46No media center specialist?
01:46 - 01:48Our financial situation cannot justify it
01:48 - 01:52We might as well just close down the entire media center then!
01:53 - 01:54Who will check out the three books a
01:56 - 01:57day that are essential for our students
01:57 - 02:00academic success and college readiness?
02:00 - 02:03Who will personally go out and purchase
02:04 - 02:08new books that no one is interested in?
02:08 - 02:13Who will make recommendations
02:14 - 02:16for our book of the month club
02:17 - 02:21to the eight students who participate?
02:27 - 02:29My dream was that we would have a
02:30 - 02:34state of the art media center
02:34 - 02:36Full of useful books from 1969
02:41 - 02:42that might be checked out once
02:43 - 02:47every thirty years
02:48 - 02:53A place where the weird kids could
02:54 - 02:56congregate with each other
02:56 - 02:59Now all those social outcasts will have to
03:00 - 03:02sit in the cafeteria with the normal people
03:04 - 03:07It's ok, you can come to my table
03:14 - 03:16A place where students could research
03:19 - 03:23on obsolete computers rather than
03:25 - 03:26their phones
03:31 - 03:33 or the Chromebooks we provide
03:40 - 03:46Let's take those old issues of Ebony
03:46 - 03:49and have a giant bonfire for Homecoming
03:53 - 03:56I suppose Media 2 will be next...
