Hawaii State Government Document:

Excerpt
Excerpt: Issue: The state of Hawaii, with the only single-district public school system (and one of the lowest student performance levels) in the country, has been experimenting with school choice for almost two decades. Efforts have included school/community based management, student centered schools, Hawaiian language immersion schools, charter schools and, most recently, so called New Century conversion charter school public/private partnerships. In each case, such educational innovation as was possible took place deeply within the context of traditional public education in Hawaii. The legislative imposition of charter schools arguably broke this mold by establishing what appeared to be a blanket exemption from all state laws. The extent to which the reality in Hawaii has matched theory can provide important guidance for legislative policymakers seeking careful wording to assure that legislative intent is actually carried out.
