VIDEO: DOE cuts HAAS bus service, three days before school | Big …


Big Island Video News. PRODUCED BY. David Corrigan. VOICE OF. Stephanie Salazar. ABOUT. PAHOA, Hawaii – Its back to school time for Hawaii’s students… but if they plan to attend a charter school in Puna, they wont have a bus ride.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Excellent report from reporter Stephanie Salazar of "Big Island Video News".  Why did the DOE wait until the last minute to inform parents of the bus cancellations?  I believe the DOE feels threatened by the charter school movement and wants "to exact its pound of flesh" from parents who want their children educated elsewhere.  Aloha, Russ.
