    ESSA TOWN HALL MEETING - August 10  6:00 pm to 8:00 pm @ KALANI HIGH SCHOOL

    Please register at the link below. Here is your opportunity to have an impact on YOUR public school system.  Through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), feedback and attendance is essential.



    If you can't make it, I will livestream just before the event at around 5:45 pm, and also following, at around 8 pm.  You can watch it through Periscope, or through my Twitter feed.  This is my first time working with the technology, so please bear with me as I do my best.


    I will also attempt to report live via Google Docs.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it, but if you want to follow along & possibly comment, the link is here. [ESSA Town Hall, Aug. 10, 2016 at Kalani HS]

  • I just returned from an all-day conference on Hawaii's public education system.  The symposium, called the 2016 Hawaii Education Summit, was hosted by Governor David Y. Ige's office.  It was open to any stakeholder in public education.

    I'd like to start off with a heartfelt mahalo to the Governor, the First Lady and the office staff.  Putting together an event of this size in just a few months is phenomenal for anyone.  It's nearly unprecedented in government.

    As for the event itself, it was well-organized and quite well attended with 1,000 participants.  Material was pertinent and informative.  Best of all, everyone -- including parents and students -- had the opportunity to provide direct feedback to the Administration.
