Hawaii Schools Report Card

November 17, 2009

Governor Lingle is finally buckling under the pressure from various quarters to do something about the Furlough Fridays. Although it would be nice to think the parents’ voices made a difference, the timing of her sudden announcement would seem to indicate one voice counted a bit more than others (although she denied that this was the case).

Anyway, all this Friday Furlough excitement got me thinking about education in Hawaii and how it stacks up against the other 49. So I started rooting around in the data to see what I could find. I was hoping to find some good stuff on high school and college graduation rates, but there don’t seem to be any good conclusive studies out there. Here’s what I was able to uncover. Apologies for any factual misrepresentation. Click on the image to view in full size.
