Summary With its primary focus on the education of native groups, this book is an extraordinary and useful work for scholars, thoughtful practitioners, policy makers, and those interested in Hawai'i, Hawaiian education, and educational policy and theory
This comprehensive educational history of public schools in Hawai'i shows and analyzes how dominant cultural and educational policy have affected the educational experiences of Native Hawaiians. Drawing on institutional theory as a scholarly lens, the authors focus on four historical cases representing over 150 years of contact with the West. They carefully link historical events, significant people, educational policy, and law to cultural and social consequences for Native Hawaiian children and youth
