NEW YORK (AP) - New York City has been ordered to provide high schools with enough librarians to meet state regulations.

The Wall Street Journal reports (https://on.wsj.com/1x6EMT5 ) that state Education Commissioner John King has told the city Department of Education it must stop violating rules on the minimum number of librarians.

The United Federation of Teachers had appealed to the commissioner to force the city to comply with regulations spelling out how many high school librarians are necessary.

King said in a decision signed Sept. 15 that the union didn’t have standing to argue on behalf of students deprived of librarians’ help. But he said the city must comply with the staffing minimums.

A spokeswoman for the city education department said the department would work on a plan to address the issue.
