Ref: Jim Wolfe's ltr, "Use waiver days to teach children" hits the nail on the head. You, myself, and probably a large portion of Hawaii citizens have been saying this all along, but "IS ANYONE LISTENING?" It doesn't take an act of God to get this moving. All it takes is for the DOE/BOE to make it happen. Come on people, enough is enough. Remember DOE/BOE and HGEA, if you're not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.

And again for those citizens blaming the governor for the instructional furlough days, she didn't designate instructional days as furlough days, that was decided by the DOE/BOE.

Like it or Not,The Governor IS To Blame. She will not hold another elected office for the rest of her life because of her actions now and in the last 8 years.

The teachers could have avoided these furloughs but they preferred to slam the door in the face of the children. That is really the shame people do not wnat to face as we like to think of our teachers as professionals who would never abandon the children. They did.
