Here's a few examples.

The start of the 2020-2021 school year for public schools was delayed from August 4 to August 17 because the Hawaii State Teachers Association (HSTA) needed to talk some sense into Superintendent Dr. Christina M. Kishimoto who didn't offer staff enough time to prepare for the challenges of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Conclusion: The HSTA was right; teachers needed more than 4 days to prepare.


Then, when COVID-19 cases skyrocketed on Oahu island, Superintendent Kishimoto delayed in-person learning for Oahu Island until September 11.

Conclusion: Superintendent Kishimoto was right; only Oahu island experienced a dangerous amount of COVID-19 cases.


The HSTA was quick to request that in-person learning is also delayed on neighbor islands. Superintendent Kishimoto agreed.

Conclusion: The HSTA and Superintendent Kishimoto was wrong; COVID-19 cases was very low on neighbor islands.


Superintendent Kishimoto then stated that every student must report to school during the week of August 17 to 20 as scheduled to meet their teachers and pick up their supplies.

Conclusion: Superintendent Kishimoto was wrong; only Oahu island is experiencing a dangerous amount of COVID-19 cases.


Finally, the HSTA is suing he Hawaii DOE in an effort to block students in all islands from meeting their teachers in-person during the week of August 17 to 20.

Conclusion: The HSTA is partially right; only Oahu island students should be blocked from meeting their teachers.


Superintendent Kishimoto fired back by stating that in-person meetings will take place for all islands.

Conclusion: Superintendent Kishimoto is wrong; Oahu island students should be blocked from meeting their teachers.
