The Governments decision to close Learning Media is disappointing news to schools, libraries and teachers. We know that this resource has been a mainstay; supporting, encouraging and developing New Zealand content and authors for generations. Back issues of resources are still sought after for their insight into New Zealand culture and heritage. The materials published by Learning Media have allowed New Zealand children to read stories based in settings familiar to them, something that materials imported from overseas simply cannot do. These resources have been used in schools for generations and it is very sad to think that they may no longer be available.
