Call to Council
The third Hawaii State Council will be held on Saturday, May 13, at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. The program will focus on a redirection of our schools study.
A panel, made up of a representative from the Department of Education, the business sector, Hawaii State Teachers Association, and the Board of Education, will discuss minimum competency testing, which has been proposed by the DOE. Pros and cons of competency testing and an assessment cf graduates of the public schools system will provide a springboard for discussion in the afternoon. League members are urged to attend and to bring interested friends and teenage students to hear and raise questions to our panel guests.
At Convention '77, the schools study committee, headed by Caroline Ingersoll, was asked to report to Council '78 with suggestions for new areas of possible study and emphasis. Caroline proposes that so attempt to define what affects school policy and what input citizens can make in order to affect that policy.
Rhoda Miller is Council coordinator and is assisted by Caroline for program and Myrne Blomquist, arrangements.
State Council is held in even years between State Conventions to adopt a budget for the next fiscal year and to review program. Each local League may send two delegates, who vote with the State Board on Council business. As stated earlier, Leaguers are urged to attend for the program portions.
Reservations should be made by May 10 by sending Myrne the reservation blank and payment or calling her at 262-7635.

JUST A THOUGHT; Someone has said that there are three classes of people; those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and the overwhelming majority who have no idea of what is happening. Save a friend from the majority and bring her to a League meeting.
