Input wanted on DOE’s next 10 years

LIHUE —The state Department of Education is seeking feedback on the first draft of a 2030 “Promise Plan,” which will guide the DOE for the next decade, centered around five promises to students.

An online toolkit for the community to provide feedback is available at Feedback will be gathered through Aug. 1, with a first draft of the plan to be delivered in September. The availability of the toolkit was announced at the state Board of Education’s general business meeting on Oahu last week.

“Our students are too important for small promises,” said DOE Superintendent Dr. Christina M. Kishimoto.

“Our next phase of strategic planning will bring together stakeholder vision and purpose around public education as a change agent for Hawaii, fueled by our three strategies: school design, teacher collaboration and student voice.”

Through the five promises to students, DOE seeks to build and expand upon gains that have been made over the last two strategic plans and innovate to solve persistent challenges, she said.

    Its always the DOE excuse for getting more funding by abusing the children as its “center piece”, when in fact just another ruse so this bloated and corrupt DOE administration continued Fraud, Waste and Abuse to line their pockets at the expense of these students.

    Why do many of its “superindendents” get more pay than the governor and their decision to spent over $100,000 to cool down a single classroom, when a compatible AC can be bought at Home Depot for under $5,000 makes you wonder where the overhead of $95,000 is going? Most likely in the pockets of DOE corrupt officials. Time to run a foresic FBI accounting investigation and arrest these crooks
