Hawaii Gov. David Ige says transforming schools is key to diversifying the state’s economy, and he wants to expand a program that enables high school students to earn college credits for free.
Ige also plans to invest more money on programs that support developing the state’s technology sector, he said in his annual State of the State address Monday.
“To transform our economy, we need to transform our schools, so our children can provide the brain power and fill the jobs required in a knowledge-based economy,” Ige said. “To keep them here, we need to ensure that our economy provides challenging and satisfying careers and homes they can afford.” Rest here
