Representative Gene Ward’s Position on Furloughs


  1. Increasing the mandatory school year to 200 days so Hawaii students can compete INTERNATIONALLY with students from countries that are scoring exponentially higher than Americans.

  2. Enacting legislation that will expedite the processes for schools to convert waiver days and other development days to instructional days.

  3. Enacting legislation that will expedite the processes for schools to extend their school days because even 20 minutes a day would make a difference.

Following today’s first Friday Furlough, parents and family members must keep the heat on all government officials, particularly the Legislature who has the majority of the power to enact these changes and make our students whole, once again. A mind is a terrible thing to waste and dumbing down our kids’ education is not the way we should go.
