I think that you should not be so quick to pass judgement on the school system in Hawaii when the grammar
in your post leaves much to be desired. You might want to think about "spell check
" prior to sending your posts. Also, if you did get a proper education, you would realize that your statement about sending your child back to the states is incorrect, as Hawaii IS A STATE. You made comments of this nature twice in your posting.
Loving mom, if you are deciding to relocate to Hawaii, you may contact me at any time. I will help you make the adjustments and find suitable schools for your children. I can also make some suggestions regarding housing, travel, sites and attractions, and anything else you can think of.
Don't let one person's experience ruin it for you. I believe that the attitude that a person carries with them will dictate the experiences they are likely to have.
Finally, if you decide to work for Tripler as an agency or travel nurse, you will get paid less than everyone else. It is common knowledge amongst Hawaii nurses that Tripler pays less. This is because they have binding fixed rates that are worked into their contracts. Agencies can not pay employees more because from a business standpoint, it is just impossible. However, if you decide to become a staff nurse there, the pay is pretty good as they add in a 25% cost of living allowance. The also have a child care co-op on site if you have small children.
