The coalition looks to a future where students from across the state have the same access to technology, the same chance for literacy, and the same opportunity to receive a world-class education. It is our hope that Washington state standards for library and information technology education become the benchmark for library and information technology instruction across the nation. <br />Equitable access to technology, literacy, and opportunity<br />WA State LIT education standards become a benchmark<br />
