Money Behind The Movement For An Appointed Ed Board

A grassroots organization promoting a "yes" vote on a constitutional amendment for an appointed Hawaii State Board of Education has raised more than $200,000 so far and received some high-powered endorsements.

Hawaii's Children First is led by former Democratic governors Ben Cayetano, George Ariyoshi and John Waihee.

Although the Hawaii State Teachers Association and members of the current elected education board oppose the ballot initiative, they have no equivalent initiative.
