Ka'a'awa School is the heart of our beautiful little town & its social life. Right now Ka'a'awa is already being pulled apart by many new wealthy vacation rentals in our town.

Mahalo for Praying for Ka'a'awa, that some way will be found to save our school & Community.. Koolua Ranch has indicated they might have some property they would swap to put a news school on-if need be.

To keep our Communities strong we need to invest in our schools and our children's future.

Ka'a'awa school is one of the rarely successful cases coming from the (DOE) Disfunctional Organization for the Elite. It embarrasses the DOE administration because the school is managed locally and without interference from the bureaucrats sitting in high priced rental suites, giving themselves farce job titles to collect their bloated "welfare" paychecks.

DOE is a bloated bureaucracy outnumbering the teachers 15,000 to 11,000 infested with do-nothings all sucking the public trough dry before it reaches the teachers and students who need it the most. These DOE parasites are hijacking Hawaii's future by graduating mediocre students and concentrating the budget for themselves so they can retire "high on the hog".

Your kids are just a piece of meat, to be labeled, processed, run through the DOE "conveyor belt" diploma milling machine and tossed out into the streets to fend for themselves.
