Hawaii's public schools enrolled 185,273 students in the 2013-14 school year, an increase of 1.1 percent compared to last year's total of 183,251. The figures represent all 255 Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) schools and 33 charter schools.Oct 2, 2013

 

Wow, they need an average of six new teachers per school? Kooky. Maybe 56k is crap salary in Hawaii?

Yes, that is a crap salary for someone with a post-graduate degree. Sadly it is typical in education. That also seems to be the median salary, so starting would be much lower (34k was a number I saw.) Given the cost of living in Hawaii, they are actually dead last in what they pay their teachers in the US. This is all made worse by the fact you have one school district for the entire state, which is a terrible way to do things.

 

So yeah, I'm not packing my bags anytime soon. 

 

edit: There are teacher shortages all over the country, so there are more attractive offers out there, even if the scenery isn't as nice.

Pretty funny. Love the cops being so upset, always shake my head at their over the top funerals.

It's wrong akin of like blasting bad boys at someone's funeral. There's a Time and a place and taste in how people should be doing.

Taking the sign forbidding people from taking things was a clever move

What is worse is her supervisor condoning it. Just beacause horrible things happened to their grandparents and such, doesn't give them the right to play around like they are owed anything by the world anymore.

 

Makes me wonder what kind of people they are raising down there, then again their governments treatment of palestinians does set a pretty low bar for how one is supposed to behave.

Not sure how many might have seen this before, but what the heck, it's worth a replay:

Another example of this mass insanity we call government. The city of Toronto has a a park with a steep rocky hill in the entrance. Several people visiting the park have fallen. The city was planning to build a wooden stair to make it safer. The bids to complete the job ranged from $65k-$150k. A retired auto mechanic went out there one weekend and built it himself for $550. The park visitors were over joyed. The city is furious. They have since blocked access to the stairs, they are demanding he tear them down, and he may face charges.
