RE: S.C.R. No. 190
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Lower & Higher Education, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 190 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO ASSESS THE ADEQUACY OF THE DEPARTMENT'S VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR A CAREER IN A VOCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request that the State Department of Education conduct a study to assess the adequacy of vocational education programs in Hawaii's public school system, given the rising cost of college tuition and significant number of job openings nationwide in vocational career fields.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Lower & Higher Education that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 190 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Lower & Higher Education,
JUSTIN H. WOODSON, Chair
