imageJoin us today for the rally on Hilo’s Bayfront, trying to raise awareness about the government’s need to equally fund charter schools. If you like, I am happy to tag your vehicle, and you too can drive around spreading the important message our state government needs to hear.

    Today’s rally was hugely successful thanks to about a hundred supporters from nearby Connections parents, teachers, and students. From faraway charters, it took even more effort to get to the bayfront but HAAS and Volcano School of Arts & Sciences were there to support charter school children in conjunction with a rally at the State Capitol for their opening day ceremonies. Funding equality is a huge issue for charters as they have received under $6000 per child for the past three years. In addition, they receive zilch for the basics of education: food, transportation to and from school, and a roof over their heads. Yet they continue, against huge odds, to offer parents a choice in public education. Let’s emphasize public, because many still don’t get the fact that they operate, or try to operate, on funds by the State government. Imua charters.
