INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I

For students in some rural schools, just finding a way to get to school can be a daily struggle. What strategies and programs are working in our public schools? Are there new ideas that can improve our students’ opportunities to succeed? Daryl Huff moderates the discussion.
