Some good news... Well, supposedly better news, on the education front last week as Hawaii's public school test scores showed some progress for the first time in six years. However, almost 40% of local schools did not meet goals. And some believe a change in the methodology of tests is partially the reason some of the numbers look better. Nonetheless, it's a move in the right direction, and you gotta start somewhere.
Ok, here's a challenge, a test if you will. How about if public school parents really step up to the plate with their school-age kids starting now; how about if parents take greater accountability and responsibility for prepping their kids--with food, as best they can, with motivation, with concern, with care, with genuine love and interest in their kid's reading, writing and 'rithmetic.
