New York City has been ordered to provide high schools with enough librarians to meet state regulations.

State Commissioner of Education John King told the city's education department it must stop violating rules on the number of librarians.

The United Federation of Teachers had appealed to the commissioner to force the city to comply with regulations. Mr. King said the union didn't have standing, but nevertheless ordered compliance. A spokeswoman for the city education department said it would work on a plan to address the issue.
