2013 Essay Contest Question
“Among many is a growing sentiment that post-secondary education may not be an option for a number of graduating high school students. A worrying report indicates that approximately 62% of West Hawaii’s graduates did not pursue further education; some may have had prior obligations, some may have not been able to bear the cost, while others simply had no interest. What opportunities do you think can be created for graduating students who are not pursuing further education and decide to remain here in West Hawaii?”
