State struggles to achieve minimum instruction hours

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

Education leaders are trying to close the gap in student learning time between Hawai`i's public school campuses. Following the 2009 teacher furloughs, legislators passed a law creating a minimum 180 instructional days along with a minimum 915 instructional hours
for elementary school students and 990 hours for those in middle and high school by the 2014-2015 school year. The state has successfully evened out the elementary schools,
but Schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi said there are some large hour discrepancies among the state’s 101middle and high schools.
