Despite efforts to improve schools, proficiency rates remain stubbornly flat

On Oct 1, 2019, HNN report the percentage of Hawaii public school students proficient in core subjects ― language arts, math and science ― remained relatively flat in the 2018-19 school year. According to the article, new figures show that just 43% of Hawaii public school students showed proficiency in math ― the same as the year before ― and 44% tested at grade level for science (down two percentage points from the previous school year).

These results are discouraging given the impetus for improving STEM in school. As being found elsewhere, just teaching STEM is not enough. For this reason, PULS promotes the integration of STEM into sustainable learning to give learning greater context.
