    Many of us have heard about “charter schools” here in Hawaii. Charter schools present an alternative to regular public schools under the state Department of Education, in that they have the freedom to teach students using their own systems and processes, rather than the ones developed by the DOE. Charter schools can be organized around certain themes, such as Hawaiian immersion, or they could be conventional schools in underserved places. A charter school has operational autonomy over a number of areas, including governance, design and delivery of its academic plan, school management and operations, and, of course, finances.

    Somehow I missed that last Saturday was Corn-On-The-Cob Day. But at least I got wind of this Saturday’s extra special moniker: International Picnic Day. What do these two pseudo-holidays have in common? I happen to think that both are perfect topics for Father’s Day food, especially when there’s a grill and an outdoor meal involved. So whether this Father’s Day calls for a backyard barbecue or a fire pit on the beach, try one or more of these easy, Dad-friendly recipes as you celebrate the real holiday this weekend.
