Survey – Legislator and Family Attendance in Public Schools – 2017

Since Hawai‘i is the state with the highest percentage of students attending public school, we surveyed legislators to see how many have attended public schools, whether they and their families choose for their children and grandchildren to attend public school.

Parents for Public Schools of Hawai‘i works to see that families and the public realize the quality of our public schools. With a large percentage of legislators using private schools instead of public schools, they may lack information needed to properly support the public schools or they may convey a lack of confidence that may not be supportive of our public schools.
