INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
About Foster Care and Foster Parenting

 

Every year, about 250,000 children enter foster care across the country. INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I offers this discussion About Foster Care and Foster Parenting. This episode comes in the wake of the State House’s shelving of a much-anticipated measure that would have increased stipends for foster parents – payments that haven’t changed in more than two decades. The action took place in the closing days of the 2017 legislative session.

Retain & Recruit

 

Hawai‘i is now at “full employment,” meaning our statewide, adjusted unemployment rate has fallen below 3 percent. In this tight job market, local and national businesses, big and small, are competing for the most qualified employees. While the gap widens between Hawai‘i’s high cost of living and the average salary scale, how can Hawai‘i workers take advantage of this situation – and how can local companies get creative with attracting qualified job candidates?

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Balancing the Endangered and Invasive Among Us

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I gave several environmental agencies a difficult assignment: collaborate, prioritize and come up with a list of the top five indigenous species we must save – and the top five invasive species we must eliminate. The nene (goose), ‘io (hawk) and honu (sea turtle) might be on one list. The coqui frog, miconia and fire ants could be found on the other. Find out the results in this live discussion. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species and The Nature Conservancy were the groups who collaborated on the lists.
