Hawaii Department of Education. Historical Development and Outlook.
Hunt, James R.
In tracing the educational history of Hawaii from the days of the monarchy up to the present time, the uniqueness of the state is stressed in terms of (1) its highly centralized (and therefore simplified) administration and control of the schools and (2) its provision of "a high degree of equal opportunity for education and an integration that has not been achieved by any of the other states. . . . The accomplishments of the various administrators under the monarchy, of the 18 territorial superintendents of education, and of the five superintendents since Hawaii achieved statehood" are reviewed followed by a brief summary of the current organizational structure and direction of the State Department of Education. Particular attention is given to matters related to educational legislation. (Related to ED 031 461.) (Author/JS)
