State Capitol Fridays

Just found out that no permits are needed.
How about we all just show up at the State Capitol every Furlough Friday?
Comments? Suggestions?

This blog was created (quickly) to organize concerned Public School Parents to advocate for Public School Teachers and Students in Hawaii.

There are four reasons for this blog:

1. Class time is critical to the educational and social development of students.

2. Public School Teachers in Hawai'i were placed in an terrible position politically and voted to take a pay cut.

3. 35.00 per student will be taken from the Weighted Student Formula, dollars allocated for the education of students in Hawai'i.

4. This is not acceptable.
"How can you do this to our children?"

Parents of public school students were entirely left out of this process and dialogue.

The sole purpose of the existence of DOE buildings, administrators, teachers, support staff, and athletic groups is education, or class time!

If you are interested in protesting the theft of instructional time from our children, read Protest below. We need your help.


If you are interested in protesting the theft of over three weeks of instructional days of your child's education,
If you are interested in showing that we support the work, salaries, and benefits of public school teachers in Hawai'i,
If you are interested in showing the DOE, Governor Linda Lingle, and HSTA that public school parents care about education will not tolerate a reduction of instructional time please comment below, and offer your support.
When we get enough support, we will work on protest permits and other details.
Again, we need your help.
