Not good, Pres. Obama! Not good when you're pushing for more time in the classroom!! Hawaii drastically cuts school year because of budget cuts. Great loss for Hawaiian children.

Dear President Obama,
How can I learn to read, write & learn arithmetic - even science as you so well want, when I only go to school 4 days a week? I like having Friday's off, but how do I compete with the other students of the World when my desk is empty one day a week?

Yours truly,
Mililani, (or Leilani) (or Kahuka) (or Palani)


While many school districts have laid off or furloughed teachers, reduced pay and planning days and otherwise cut costs, Hawaii's 171,000 public schools students now find themselves with only 163 instructional days, compared with 180 in most districts in the U.S.

Well this is certainly a strange proposition....Our President makes speeches to stay in school and study hard, yet the schools are cutting back the hours.
But that is how the elites like it, they will suck dry every dime out of you and I, this economy, and as the schools crumble they do not care, for if citizens can not read and are kept ignorant, then it will keep them in the dark to what is going that is how the Theives like it!
Once they are done with us, drained every cent, put our society in the toilet, they'll move on to where the people are now just starting to have some monies....China or where-ever, doesn't matter to the Corporations for they can live any place they want and still eat, have their mansions, and fun. Oh happy days.
