The Superintendent's Eighth Annual Report on School Performance and Improvement in Hawaii, 1997.
Gans, Thomas
This report contains collective data on Hawaii's schools, showing trends over time and, where appropriate, comparisons with data from other states. It includes data from 246 public schools and 7 school districts for the 1996-97 school year. In 1996-97, enrollment growth, which had exceeded 1.5% for 5 years, declined sharply to 1%. Dropout rates for students in grades 9 through 12 averaged 5% per year. The number of students with special needs increased more rapidly than the population of students at large. In 1987-88, Hawaii ranked 48th among the states in pupil-to-teacher ratio, but by 1992-93, Hawaii had tied for 35th place. However, fiscal constraints beginning the following year halted progress on this educational indicator. Hawaii now ranks first among the states in tax collections per capita, but is last in the percentage of state and local revenue allocated to public schools. Over 86% of Hawaii's schools have committed to the process of implementing school-based management, and 71% have already implemented school-based management. Information on context, process, and outcomes indicators is provided. (Contains 28 figures, 24 tables, and 24 endnotes.) (SLD)
