INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Does Fine Arts Education Have a Place in Hawai‘i’s Public Schools?

 

Federal and state mandates have compelled public schools to focus more time and resources on academic standards and less on the fine arts. Are we shortchanging students by not giving them an outlet for creative expression? Has fine arts education fallen by the wayside with the push to excel in critical thinking in Hawai‘i’s public schools?

 

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Is Public School Reform Working for Hawai‘i’s Students?

 

The $75 million Race to the Top grant gave Hawai‘i’s public schools a much needed boost toward overall student academic achievement. But educators still believe we have a long way to go to get our students career- and college-ready. What more needs to be done as we prepare to apply the standards of the one-size-fits-all Common Core nationalized plan for education? Are we placing too much of a burden on our teachers? Should the focus be on parents?
