Hawaii Basic Data and Information Book on Children. Children: Five to Twelve Years.
Bremner, Dorothy G.
Considered an indispensible aid to formulating policies and programs, this book of tables gives demographic and statistical information on 5- to 12-year-old Hawaiian children. The information provided concentrates on factors that are especially important in a 5- to 12-year-old's life: home, school, the economy, the peer group, health, and the juvenile justice system. Chapter 1 gives background on the population of children and profiles the large military population and growing immigrant populations. Chapter 2 describes the material circumstances of the children and their families, and Chapter 3 describes their parents. Chapter 4 presents information on the problem of child abuse and neglect. Chapter 5 describes the extent of foster care placements. Chapter 6 highlights health problems that can affect children's learning and adjustment. Chapter 7 describes school in terms of public and private enrollment, test scores, attendance, educational neglect, suspensions, and vandalism and violence. Chapter 8 discusses juvenile justice, police and the family court; arrests of children; referral to family court; and the dispositions of cases. A map of school districts, the geocode equivalents for school districts, and a glossary of terms are appended. (DST)
