Report says state is issuing fewer credentials for such position

From The Bay Citizen: California is issuing fewer credentials for public school service positions such as librarians, school nurses and administrators, and its schools are employing fewer service staff, according to a report by the state Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The commission issued 11 percent fewer service credentials in 2010-11 compared with 2006-07. The number of people employed in service positions declined 9 percent during the same period. The report tracks credentials and employment in these areas: administrative services; teacher librarian services; school nurses; speech-language pathology, and clinical or rehabilitative services; and pupil personnel services, which include school counselors, psychologists, social workers, and child welfare and attendance workers.
