It would be much appreciated if someone would inform us how to technically set up teleconferencing so we can also avoid the time and expense and contagion of mainland travel and seminars.
Skype? Almost any smartphone has face to face capabilities.
Totally agree! There is absolutely no reason he should be flying there for meetings that could easily be done via computer.
What a complete waste of money.
Mr. Fitzpatrick, excellent letter! You have succinctly identified three reasons that the practice of Kauai’s public school officials traveling to Honolulu be stopped. The waste of time and money, having been endured by taxpayers for so long, and now the frightening prospect of the COVID-19 outbreak hitting our island, are irrefutable arguments for immediately ending the existing travel programs. I encourage you to send your letter to the Hawaii Department of Education, the Governor, State Legislators, Mayor of Kauai, Teachers Union, plus anyone else who could bring about this change as soon as possible.
But, but, “where else can they get manapua, etc?”
Good point Mr Fitzpatrick!
