The State of Hawaii maintains the most highly centralized school system in the US. The Governor appoints the members of the Board of Education. The Board (with frequent interference from the Legislature) controls the single, State-wide school district. Hawaii's relaxed position on homeschooling provides the only bright contrast in this dark picture.
Elsewhere in the USA, parents and politicians promote expansion of parent control (school choice). In the wider world, bureaucrats do what bureaucrats do.
