Is Hawaii our future?

I am increasingly worried about public education in California at all levels. This story from Hawaii caught my attention over the weekend. I was not aware that the cutting had been this drastic there.

Five days less school looks likely for much of CA next year (this is frustrating, because we should be figuring out how to add days, not subtract), but at least it isn't as bad as Hawaii.
Hawaii now has the shortest school year in the nation after the state and the teachers’ union agreed to shutter schools for 17 days a year, leaving 171,000 students without class on most Fridays.
