School Readiness in Hawaii

Legislative officials, families, and community members should be more involved in making children in Hawaii “school-ready,” and early-childhood teachers and staff members should receive higher wages to decrease staff turnover, recommends a report by researchers from the University of Hawaii and Aloha United Way, both based in Honolulu.

The study—which examines data from the Hawaii health department, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics—says that high-quality, “intensive” early-childhood education with multiple years of toddler care and support for new parents can decrease the achievement gap in Hawaii and improve social mobility.
