HAWAI`I CHARTER SCHOOLS & PARENTS UPSET AT OHA PLAN TO GIVE $1.5 MILLION TO CNHA

HawaiiNewsNow - September 21, 2017

Every year, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs gives $1.5 million to Hawaiian charter schools. Halau Ku Mana, one of 17 Hawaiian focused charter gets about $50,000-$60,000 of the OHA money.

Recently, OHA awarded the contract to administer the funds to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement instead of another group called KALO. 


An internal memo shows the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement received a score of 81.3 while Kanu O Ka Aina Learning Ohana (KALO) got 75.

Charter school supporters testified at the OHA board meeting.

I humbly request that you do not give the charter school funding to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement which is a political organization rather than an educational non-profit," said Healani Sonoda-Pale, parent at Halau Ku Mana.


"I'm worried that after the first year that those resources may decrease. I'm worried that CHNA will leverage the funds for purposes that aren't education related," said Keoni Bunag,  principal at Halau Ku Mana.

The Council favors US federal recognition while many at Halau Ku Mana oppose it.

"I think at the core of the mistrust is the opposition to our position on federal recognition," said Michelle Kauhane, President and CEO of the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement.

The new contract hasn't be finalized yet and the OHA board will take up this issue on its September 27th agenda.

ALERT! - CNHA TO POCKET $225,000 IN $1.5 MILLION HAWAIIAN CHARTER SCHOOL SCHEME
 

 



























Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

Mahalo to everyone who has taken the time to express your outrage to the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs over their plans to give the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement $1.5 million dollars earmarked for Hawai`iʻs charter schools.

Without officially notifying the trustees ahead of time, OHAʻs administration decided to award the CNHA a contract to be a “middleman” in the disbursement of these funds.

Many of the affected charter schools have strongly objected to this CNHA contract, pointing out that not only does the CNHA have no expertise whatsoever in charter school education, their mission is political rather than educational.

The CNHA does NOT have the background and track record to justify awarding them such a large amount of funds that are earmarked for Hawaiian education.

The CNHA has never even bothered to build rapport and trust with Hawaiian charter schools and the families of those students who attend.
When asked recently by OHA trustees how much money the CNHA would keep out of the grant as administration fees, CNHA president Michelle Kauhane stated about 15%.

Stop and think about that for a minute - a fee of 15% is $225,000 - almost a quarter of a million dollars will be pocketed by the CNHA!

CNHA leadership will not think twice about depriving Hawai`i charter schools of $225,000 badly needed dollars.

Why? Because The CNHAʻs mission is simple - secure funding to force US federal recognition on Hawaiians in any way they can.


We ask you to contact OHAʻs administration and trustees to express your outrage at the CNHAʻs cynical ploy to profit from Hawai`iʻs charter school students.

Demand that OHA either select an organization that works closely with Hawaiian charter schools or give the funds directly to the schools.

ALERT! - OHA GIVING CNHA $1.5 MILLION TO CONTROL CHARTER SCHOOLS

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

We wish to bring to your attention a very disturbing and appalling action by the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs that has just now come to public light.

OHAʻs administration is giving the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement $1.5 million dollars of Hawaiian Beneficiary money.

These funds are normally an annual grant given as a funding supplement to Hawai`iʻs charter schools which regularly experience a shortfall in state funding.

By OHA giving the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement this grant instead, it will allow the CNHA to “weaponize” these funds and control which, if any schools will receive even a portion of these monies.

Reliable sources call this blatant move by the CNHA and OHA an attempt to control through threat of withholding funds, those Hawaiian charter schools which have been vocal in support of protecting Mauna Kea as well as teaching about Independence rather than supporting US federal recognition and Na`i Aupuni.

It is no secret that for some time most charter school students have taken positions that are in direct opposition to those of the CNHA.

Sources also reveal that the majority of OHA trustees have been kept completely in the dark about plans to award these funds to the CNHA.

Sources report that three members of the “old guard” trustees - Colette Machado, Robert Lindsey and Dan Ahuna have been privately aware of this plan in varying degrees for several months.

We ask you to contact OHAʻs administration and trustees to express your outrage at this shameful and repugnant attempt to exert control over Hawai`iʻs charter schools, its students and their curriculum.

Demand that OHA either select a different and neutral “intermediary” to channel these funds through or give them directly to the schools themselves.

Please contact OHA today -
