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?
