Honolulu Magazine looks at the lowering of the education quality at Hawaii's schools. The story reveals that, according to the National Education Association for year 2000, the government schools got a "D-" for standards and accountability, "F" in school climate, and "D" in improving teacher quality. The reporter finds that Hawaii has failed to invest in its schools for decades, but still "the biggest illusion is that these schools are free," since $1.28 billion a year is being spent on the department of education alone. The article examines different options to improve the quality of public education in Hawaii.
