Supporting Alternative Schools and Early Childhood Education


On February 1, 2013 at 1:15 P.M., Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Keith M. Kaneshiro testified before the Senate Education Committee and Judiciary and Labor Committee in support of SB419 that appropriates funds to the DOE for 2 additional alternative schools to facilitate the ongoing education of juveniles involved in the justice system. Kaneshiro believes we must help at-risk youth through education.

Prosecuting Attorney Keith M. Kaneshiro also testified in support of SB1084 that proposes a constitutional amendment to permit the appropriation of public funds for private early childhood education programs, as provided by law, to help the State meet its goal of providing an early learning system for the children of Hawaii. Studies have shown that at-risk children who had early childhood education were less likely to commit crimes.
