Dangerous Crossings


We all know Hawaiʻi is one of the most beautiful places in the country to live, but it is also one of the most dangerous – if you’re a pedestrian. Through mid-November, there have been 36 pedestrian deaths statewide this year, up from 15 last year. How do we save lives?

Maui High School story to be featured on PBS NewsHour



A story on campus safety by Maui High School students will air on tonight’s PBS NewsHour. Click the link or the image above to view the story. View the highlight of Maui High School, here.


The story, “Schools, Not Prisons,” covers the unique safety challenges Hawaii schools face, since local campuses are open and contain multiple buildings.  The story also features Puu Kukui Elementary School, a new school in Wailuku that was designed with safety in mind.


The story is part of a PBS NewsHour series, “The New Safe,” a collaboration between PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs and Student Television Network. The series “investigates how schools across the country are rethinking what it means to feel safe and be safe at school,” according to PBS NewsHour.


April marks anniversaries of the tragedies at Columbine and Virginia Tech.


Maui High School is one of two Hawaii schools that participate in PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs, which connects schools with mentors in public media and provides a collaborative space for digital media, critical thinking and communication skills, while developing news reports.
