WE STRONGLY OPPOSE SENATE BILL 1070 & HOUSE BILL 712. THIS BILL SEEKS TO CREATE AN EXCLUSIONARY HAWAIIAN EDUCATIONAL ENTITY TO ADMINISTER AND CONTROL ALL ASPECTS OF HAWAIIAN EDUCATION AT ALL LEVELS (HAWAIIAN IMMERSION, HAWAIIAN MEDIUM, COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY) WITH NO COMMUNITY INPUT. THIS BILL IGNORES THE VOICES OF OUR STUDENTS, PARENTS, SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES. AS IT STANDS IT MANDATES ABSOLUTE GOVERNANCE WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE AND OR SUPPORT OF VAST MAJORITY OF ALL STAKEHOLDERS.

Ileana Haunani Ruelas, United States4 years ago Comments: The problematic parts are paragraph 4 in SB1070 where the new Hawaiian language university is to be the sole provider for Hawaiian language teacher training, assessment, curriculum development. and paragraph 6 where this sole university is made into an agency to run Hawaiian medium education which will leads to a monopoly of Hawaiian language education, instead of diversity intended to expand teaching and promote innovation within the field.
