Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
I support all productive initiatives to improve the quality of education in Hawaii, including the essential need of the state DOE to withdraw from the federal government’s “Common Core” program which will further cripple Hawaii’s education system.
What is your one big idea?
Recently, the Department of Defense announced that Hawaii is one of 19 states to potentially lose stationed soldiers as part of the Army’s mandated downsizing from 550,000 to 420,000. I STRONGLY support the proposed cuts for Hawaii (19,800 on Oahu) and immediate return of Schofield, Wheeler, and Makua to the state of Hawaii.
