To Teach the Children: Historical Aspects of Education in Hawaii. A Publication Accompanying the Exhibition Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the College of Education and the 75th Anniversary of the University of Hawaii.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Coll. of Education.
Designed to accompany a historical exhibition of engravings, drawings, books, documents, photographs, and artifacts that depict major influences upon education in Hawaii, this document includes a selection of captioned photographs from the exhibition and three essays that provide an overview of the history of education in the Hawaiian Islands. The photographs show schools that were established in Hawaii over the years and illustrate facets of traditional Hawaiian education, early influences from abroad, missionary educational accomplishments, education under the Hawaiian monarchy, early twentieth century education, ethnic language schools, the development of higher education, and current issues in education. In one accompanying essay, Marion Kelly describes traditional education among the early Hawaiians, characterizing that education as being practical, skill oriented, socially useful, realistic, and oriented to learning-by-doing along with memorization and rote. In the second essay, Ralph Stueber provides an informal history of schooling in Hawaii, emphasizing the influence and ultimate domination of American education, and the conflicts and compromises brought about by multicultural Hawaiian society. In the third essay, Barbara Hunt explores the future of Hawaiian education in the face of the communications revolution and the possibility of local control of public institutions. (Author/MJL)
