Pahoa High & Intermediate School has not had a School Librarian for the past five years and could benefit from services that most Hawaii public school students enjoy.
Students begin post-secondary experiences already at a great disadvantage: they don't know how to use a library.
As educators, we are demanding equity for all Pahoa area students that they may have universal access to educational resources

Russel Ruderman (HI-2), and Governor Neil Abercrombie, which says:
"Introduce IMMEDIATE legislation to fund and staff a school library."
