    I wonder how much having all those telescopes on top of Mauna Kea has to do with this ranking it if we didn’t have those telescopes where would UH be?

    So sad about our Kauai Community College. I understand that 9 students who were in their second year of the RN nursing program- were all terminated from the nursing program in the Fall of 2019 due to failing a test. So sad with such a critical need of RN’s and they had worked so hard to get to their 2 nd year but due to one failure were terminated. This is my understanding of the situation. Our KCC needs to further evaluate this situation who is at fault the students or the teachers?
