Public Education in Hawaii. Bulletin, 1935, No. 10

With the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands as a Territory in 1898, the people of the United States assumed responsibility for leadership of the Hawaiian people toward social and economic goals, as well as for the establishment and maintenance of democratic government. In a democracy education is the chief means of promoting stability of government and social welfare. Therefore, the type of school system set up to achieve the purposes indicated, its administration and support, the methods through which desired educational objectives are to be attained, and progress toward their attainment are of continuing interest in continental United States. In pursuance of the functions assigned to it by Congress the United States Office of Education assumes the same responsibility for the promotion of education and for disseminating information concerning it in Hawaii as in the States on the continent. While Hawaiians have been citizens of the United States since 1898 and while Hawaii territorially has the same civil status as did the majority of the States until their admission in the Union, its relative isolation from the continent mitigates against general familiarity with its educational progress. This bulletin has been prepared as a step in the direction of wider acquaintance on the continent with public education in Hawaii. (Contains 7 tables and 33 endnotes.)
