Videos of Hawaii Education
Welcome to our collection of videos of Hawaii education. The need for reform of Hawaii’s educational ethos grows ever more pressing. Hawaii is sharply divided between those who own real estate and those who don’t… or some variation on that theme. Our best and brightest have voted with their feet. More than half of our college graduates leave, and we have lost 100,000 of our best and brightest to the Ninth Island. What’s happening here is of a piece with our usual pattern of exploitation and burnout. It is the same thing that happened with sandalwood, whaling, sugar, development, and tourism. What will become of us when we have no more natural resources to exhaust? That leaves us with the one resource that is at once the most precious and the most neglected: our human capital. If it hasn’t all left by then. We must begin with acquiring an understanding of ourselves and our unique identity… and of all we could offer the world as a knowledge economy.
