Board praises Hawaii schools superintendent – Education Week

Published Online: October 22, 2014

HONOLULU (AP) — The state Board of Education is giving Hawaii's public schools superintendent an "exceeds expectations" rating for the current year.

The board said Tuesday public schools have made exceptional progress under Kathryn Matayoshi's leadership.

It says Matayoshi continues to perform well by increasing departmental transparency, accountability and carrying out strategic initiatives.

Matayoshi received an "exceptional" rating in her evaluation last year. Her rating this year was lower in reflection of the board's higher expectations and goals.

Matayoshi was named superintendent in 2010. The board this year reappointed her to serve another three years.

Hawaii was one of four jurisdictions to see improved average math scores for both fourth and eighth graders in last year's National Assessment of Educational Progress results.

Reader: Hawaii Early-Childhood Measure Blurs Church and State

To the Editor:

Amendment 4 on the November ballot in Hawaii would authorize tax support for private early-childhood education programs in secular and faith-based private schools.

While the proposed law and Article X, Section 1 of the Hawaii constitution both prohibit tax support for any form of discrimination (by race, religion, sex, or ancestry), Amendment 4 would not seem to prohibit sectarian indoctrination in the tax-aided, faith-based private schools.

So Hawaiians could be taxed to support sectarian training that they would not choose to support voluntarily, and this would violate language in the state constitution that protects religious freedom and separation of religion and government.
