This half-hour documentary by filmmaker Stuart Yamane examines a new phase in the evolution of the nation's first statewide student news network. Four years after the launch of HIKI NŌ, a new dream has transpired: to develop HIKI NŌ as a sanctioned class within Hawaii's statewide school system, and into a curriculum available to public, private and charter schools. Thanks to funding from the Stupski Family Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation, PBS Hawaii has the resources needed to realize this dream. Teachers, students, curriculum developers, education evaluators, media professionals and leaders from the Department of Education and PBS Hawaii share their vision for what this new curriculum will look like and how it will work – charting a course into a new education frontier.

This program encores Saturday, Jan. 17 at 12:30 pm and Sunday, Jan. 18 at 3:00 pm. You can also view HIKI NŌ episodes on our website, www.pbshawaii.org/hikino.
